Mrs. McCanney

Hello everyone! I want to extend to you and your family my warmest welcome to our classroom. My name is Emily McCanney (Mrs. McCanney), and I am a Cross Categorical Resource (CCR) Reading and Math Teacher for 6th, 7th, and 8th graders, and the Lead Exceptional Children's Teacher at Highland Middle School. This is my tenth year in education and my sixth year teaching EC at HMS. I look forward to another exciting and successful year here at HMS! 

In my classes, students are taught TransMath and Language!. TransMath is a comprehensive mathematics intervention that provides key foundational skill-building and problem-solving experiences through multisensory strategies, and Language! is an intensive, comprehensive literacy curriculum for students in grades 4–12 who are substantially below grade-level expectations, and it teaches foundational skills, writing, vocabulary, fluency, grammar, comprehension, and spoken English. Please check out my Resources page to find more information on the TransMath and Language! curriculums. 

Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns.
