  Hello! My name is Jill McNeal and I am thankful to be a part of the DT family! I grew up in this community and I love teaching in my former "neck of the woods".  The majority of my teaching career has been right here in Davidson County, teaching primarily K-2. I have also been a Reading Specialist in Guilford County. I received my B.S. in Elementary Education from UNCG, and I also have add-on certification in Teaching Reading K-12, and ESOL.
As a Reading Specialist, each day I pull small groups of students to teach them strategies that they can use to help them when reading. During the year, we will continue to take a look at student progress and data. Our groups are flexible and may change throughout the year. Our goal is to give children the support that they need in order to boost their reading skills and help them build confidence as a reader.  Thank you in advance for all that you do to help your child be as successful as possible in school!
