Mrs. Janie Beckendorff
I joined the staff of Bell Elementary as Dyslexia Designee in 2019 after many years in the classroom. I began teaching in 1987 and have taught all elementary grades 1-5. In 2017, I became a Certified Academic Language Practitioner and have received specialized instruction in Multisensory Structured Language methodology to develop and strength reading and written expression. I truly enjoy working with students identified with dyslexia as they fill their "toolbox" with strategies that grow their reading skills and confidence.
I am available for conferences 2:00-2:30 Monday-Friday.
