Mrs. Holly Hess

My name is Holly Hess and I am the Instructional Support Teacher (IST) and Read 180 Coordinator at WAMS.  This is my first year in this position.  Prior to this position I taught 8th grade Learning Support here at WAMS. 

My job as an Instructional Support Teacher is to comprise a team of individuals, known as the instructional support team, to maximize individual student success in the classroom as needed for academic or behavioral needs. The team works together to implement strategies to achieve success in the classroom.

Students are identified for IST services by the classroom teacher, other educators, administration and/or parents.

The Instructional Support Team process also serves as a screening process for students who may be in need of special education services.

Please feel free to contact me at the school (x1314) or by email anytime during the school year if you have any questions. (

I am also the coordinator for the Read 180 program.  Read 180 is a program building reading comprehension, academic vocabulary, and writing skills for struggling students in grades 4 and up.  A branch of this program is System 44.  System 44 is a reading program for the most challenged readers in grades 3 - 12+. It helps students master reading skills, such as phonics, comprehension and writing.
