    I just accepted a new position for the upcoming school year. I will be the interventionist and Teacher Consultant in an elementary building. I previously worked in the high school team teaching, so this is a new position.

    I will be assessing all of the students (through RTI), and the students that need that extra help I will pull in small groups 1-3 times a week to provided targeted interventions. In the past the focus has been primarily on literacy, but this year math will be included. Is there anyone out there that has done anything similar? I am looking for good texts/articles on interventions.

    Any suggestions or advice will be greatly appreciated! Thanks :)

    Congrats! We have this position in my school, but I do not work it.

    Some suggestions... work with the teachers when creating a schedule and build great relationships with them, plan for about 5 weeks to use for testing (2 in the beginning of the year, 2 in the middle, and one near the end), do the progress monitoring yourself
