Welcome to Mrs. Alton's page!
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.
