Brooke Johnson-Korbel, Enrichment Reading Specialist PK-3, Groves Literacy Coach

I graduated from Bemidji State University in 2018, where I earned my Bachelor of Science Degree in Elementary Education. I received my undergraduate degree at Vermilion Community College in Ely, Minnesota. While living in Ely, I had the chance to be close to family and I fell in love with the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness. Spending time outdoors is a true passion of mine. When I’m not at school, you can also find me at Mainstream Boutique downtown New Prague, where I help empower women through fashion.  

I have had the privilege of becoming a Groves Believe and Read certified Interventionist as well as a Literacy Coach with our partnership with Groves Learning Organization. Believe and Read is a best-in-class literacy program that transforms reading instruction, using the science of reading. This is St. Dominics 5th year as a certified Groves Literacy school! 

My goal as the Enrichment Teacher is to motivate and challenge all students to maximize personal growth and meet their individual educational needs. As an interventionist, I help our Kindergarten- 3rd grade students build their foundation in reading using the science of reading. It is rewarding to watch our students grow so much academically each year. 

I am also St. Dominic’s in house Groves literacy coach where I help support and certify our classroom teachers keeping our literacy program in tip top shape! Our team of literacy teachers here at St. Dominic School provide the best literacy education in town and we teach with 100% fidelity. We are very proud of our literacy program and our students for performing well above the national average. 

Please contact me if you would like to chat about Believe and Read or learn more about the program. Also, please help us spread the word about Believe and Read to other families with young children who might be considering Catholic education. Thank you for supporting our efforts to create an even better learning environment for our students! 

I feel blessed to have been a part of the St. Dominic School family for the last 6 years and I look forward to another wonderful school year! 

-Watching students learn to read: magic.  Knowing how they got there: science!
