• Welcome to Mrs. Alton's page!

    Benton STEM

    My name is Mrs. Heather Alton and I am the Title I/Reading Recovery teacher at Benton.  I have been teaching for 22 years and 16 of those years have been as a reading teacher.  Teaching reading is my passion. I love working with struggling readers to help them become successful both as a reader, and in their classroom. As kids learn to read they also gain confidence and develop a love of learning.   I believe reading is the tool all kids need to become anything they want!

    When I am not teaching I am spending time with my family.  I have three boys  who are 19, 17, and 4.  We are a baseball family and are often traveling on weekends watch my son play.  We also love to go to Cardinals games and spending time outdoors.
