Chad McClanahan
Title 1 Reading/ESL
Mr. Chad McClanahan

Greetings from Mr. McClanahan! I have been working at WACO Elementary for 17 years, the last 11 as the Title 1 Reading teacher. I received my BA in Elementary Education from Buena Vista University, my K-6 Reading Endorsement from Buena Vista, and I should have my K-12 English as a Second Language Endorsement from William Penn University by December of this year. I was once a struggling reader during most of my elementary years. It wasn’t until I moved to WACO in 5th grade that I was challenged to make reading a priority. I started putting forth the necessary effort to improve and found out how much I enjoyed reading when I didn’t have to work so hard figuring out the words.I think the experience of being a struggling reader has really helped me understand how many of my students feel, as well as giving me an insight to the process of learning to read. My teaching responsibilities include 2nd – 6th grade Title 1 Reading and Kindergarten – 6thgrade English as a Second Language. On +1 Fridays I will be teaching three sections Google Technology in the computer lab. I am very excited for this new opportunity.During February I plan and head up a month-long celebration of reading called Read-A-Million Minutes.
