    Hello, my name is Tracy Oldiges.  This is my 18th year of teaching and 13th year with Tipp City Schools.  This year starts my 10th year in reading intervention.  I previously taught first and fourth grades in the regular classroom.  I provide reading support to second and third graders at Broadway Elementary and LOVE my job!  

       I earned a Bachelor's degree in Psychology from The Ohio State University and my Elementary Education Certification (grades 1-8) from Wright State University.  I also earned a Master's degree in Reading from the The University of Dayton and hold an Ohio Reading Endorsement (K-12).  In 2017, I completed a five day training from IMSE (Institute for Multi-Sensory Education) on the Orton Gillingham Method for phonics instruction.  This past summer I completed a 40 hour course online on the Orton Gillingham method.  I'm excited to use these multi-sensory teaching strategies in my classroom.  I also have 30+ hours beyond my Master's degree in various literacy education courses.  
       I live in Minster with my husband, Jason, my two children, Jack (8th grade) and Elise (7th grade), and our pets: a lab/retriever mix named Condi and a tuxedo cat named Mr. Mittens that we rescued as a kitten from Lake Loramie State Park.  In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with our pets, reading, jogging, Ohio State Buckeye football, making greeting cards, and gardening.  I love watching children become confident and blossom into great readers!  I enjoy working with the supportive parents and wonderful students in the Tipp City District!  Education is a team effort!  Let's make this a great year of reading growth for your child.
