Welcome to Title I

Hello! My name is Jeanette Schams and I am the Title I teacher at North Woods International.

The Title I Program is a federally funded program created to give support to those children who are in need of additional time for learning. I work closely with the classroom teachers to offer small group guided reading instruction in grades 1-3.

If you would like to talk about your child and reading or the Title I program please feel free to contact me at (608)789-7000 or at

The site’s TeachMe function spells and displays the word in ways that stimulate memory for visual and verbal learners. For added fun and offline learning, Spelling City also offers Printable Games including WordSearch, UnScramble, WhichWord? and MissingLetter.
