Learning Lab


Learning Lab students receive 30-minute lessons daily to work on enhancing their reading and writing abilities. We mix in fun learning games with our lessons to help encourage students to excel. The goal of the Learning Lab is to help students become proficient readers and writers.

Hello, my name is Kaitlyn Boswell and I have taught at Center Valley since 2015. I taught third grade for 3 years and I have been a Reading Interventionist since 2017. I graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Early Childhood Education from Arkansas Tech University and a Master's Degree in The Science of Reading. In my free time, I teach VIPKID every morning, I enjoy getting outdoors, spending time with family and friends, and volunteering my time as a leader over the kids ministry at my church. I have always had a passion for working with children! My goal is to help raise some amazing men and women. I want my students to be creative, problem solvers, and independent. “You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes.
