Welcome to Cascade LAP for 2014-15!

My name is Janet Markwardt and I am thrilled to be Cascade's reading teacher.  I've worked for the past few years in Shoreline's Extended-Day Kindergarten in early reading intervention, focusing on helping primary students learn the basics of reading.  I have my master's degree from Seattle Pacific University in literacy, and my passion is early reading intervention.  

I love to read, and my favorite book is The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien.

LAP stands for Learning Assistance Program, and it is focused on K-4 reading intervention.  All Shoreline schools have a LAP or Title 1 Program.
