My name is Cathy Wic and I am a Reading Specialist at Palos East School. I have been working as a Reading Resource Teacher since 1998. My past experience includes teaching first, second and third grades. I have a Bachelor of Arts degree from Lewis University and a Master’s Degree in Reading along with post graduate studies. Currently I am working with Kindergarten through Fifth Grade students to enhance their reading abilities. The focus of reading instruction includes phonological awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary and comprehension. My goal is to help students become life-long readers who learn to love books! Happy Reading!

Greetings! I have had the great fortune to be a part of the District 118 family since 1987. I attended Southern Illinois University for my undergraduate work and Lewis University for my post graduate studies. My years of teaching experience include special education, fourth grade, and fifth grade, but since 2005 I have been part of the Palos East Reading Resource team. My goal is not only to work with students on five main areas of reading – phonemic awareness, phonics, vocabulary, fluency, and comprehension – but to also help foster a love of reading and books.
