Welcome to Mrs. Aggie's Class

Katherine Agerter is my given name, but I am better known as "Mrs. Aggie." I moved to Valdosta years ago to attend Valdosta State University. I have been teaching since 1988 and still enjoy every minute with my students. I taught full time until 2015. At that time I retired, but chose to continue my career in education by pursuing a part time teaching position. Since that time I have been teaching EIP (Early Intervention Program) and feel truly blessed to have been given the opportunity to work with students in this capacity. Witnessing young, inexperienced students transform into confident learners is an amazing, fun, and extremely rewarding experience.

My husband of over 30 years is Jeff Agerter and he is a small business owner. I have two adult children. Both graduated from Lowndes High School and then the University of Georgia. They are currently pursuing careers in the business world. Austin lives in Atlanta and Abbey in Washington, D.C.. 

For fun I enjoy the beach, visiting family, traveling, exercising and working in my yard. Flowers tend to make me happy! I exercise regularly out of necessity because I also enjoy cooking AND eating. I am always up for an adventure. Jeff and I often set out for a drive on the weekend having no idea where we will end up, but always finding something fun to do! Since none of my extended family lives in this area, I often travel to fun places to visit them. This season of my life is a relaxing and pleasurable time. There are many things to enjoy, but my first love is working with carefree and entertaining children that remind me each day that the best way to live life is with a smile!

What is EIP?

Children start school at a designated chronological age, but differ greatly in their intellectual development and experience base. The Early Intervention Program (EIP) is designed to serve students who are at risk of not reaching or maintaining academic grade level. The purpose of the Early Intervention Program is to provide additional instructional resources to help students who are performing below grade level obtain the necessary academic skills to reach grade level performance in the shortest possible time.

What to Expect

Your child has been placed in EIP so that he or she can receive resources and instruction not provided to the general student population in an effort to increase his or her academic performance. 

In an EIP classroom your child will be a part of a smaller group which will increase the amount of attention your child receives. Motivational games, playful computer programs, supplemental reading materials, tangible rewards for effort and progress, along with an abundance of teacher attention will help your child progress. 

The concepts your child's regular classroom teacher is focusing on will also be the focus in the EIP setting. The emphasis will be on basic skills needed to succeed in the regular classroom. For reading EIP,  stress will be placed on letter or sight word recognition, phonics, and reading fluency.
