My name is Melissa Chandler and I am a reading interventionist.  This is my ninth year teaching and my fifth year as an interventionist.  I have been lucky enough to teach at Northern for my whole career.  I even did my student teaching here!  Before becoming a reading teacher, I taught both third and fourth grades.  I graduated from UK with a bachelor's degree in elementary education and went on to earn my master's in Educational Leadership from EKU.  I have been married for eight years and have two awesome children of my own.


My name is Karen Sawyer and I am a reading interventionist.  I have been teaching at Northern for three years, however I have been a part of the school for much longer.  Both of my children attended Northern, during which time I served as the PTO president and parent volunteer coordinator.  I have always had a love for reading and working with children which led me to explore opportunities in teaching.  I grew up in Bowling Green, but have lived in Georgetown for the past 22 years with my husband and two children.
