Mr. Kevin Heinz
My name is Kevin Heinz, and I will be teaching 6th and 7th grade Inclusion English, and 7th and 8th grade Social Studies in TIA. I work throughout the school with many different teachers to support students in a variety of ways.
This is my fourth year teaching at Mount Elden, and throughout that time, I have done a variety of things. I have taught Science and Social Studies at all three grade levels, both general education and resource, and I have spent the last two years teaching a reading intervention class as well. I look forward to working to support and improve your child's education, and strive to have a school year full of successes and growth.
If you have any questions, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org

I recommend that students use the MyLexia PowerUp application on their iPads for at least 30 minutes per day. This program works with their specific areas of need to improve reading. All students have an account already, with most students logins and passwords being their Student ID number. If this does not work, please email me and I will send you the login information.
For 6th grade students, I recommend Lexia PowerUp for reading, and Moby Max for math. Both of these applications function to improve student needs through fun and engaging instruction. For a cool-down period, the math games link provides interesting math practice. Coolmathgames.com also provides logic and math based games, and though less instruction, is still helpful to improve problem solving skills.
For 7th grade students, I recommend Lexia PowerUp for reading, and Moby Max for math. Both of these applications function to improve student needs through for fun and engaging instruction. I also recommend Readworks, which provides reading passages at a variety of reading levels. These passages can come with questions to answer, or may simply be used to practice reading and improve fluency.
