About Birdy

After raising 4 children, 1 with a learning disability, I went back to school to get my teaching degree and started my career as a professional educator in 2000. In 2007 I graduated with Honors and received my MEd and a reading endorsement from Concordia University.

Over the past 17 years I have taught in a private school, public schools and private tutoring. I've taught kindergarten, first grade, a first/second blended classroom and 5th grade. But, most of my teaching experience has been as intervention specialist for reading support . Working with struggling learners, targeting their specialize needs and supporting them has been the most rewarding experience of all.

I have been trained in multiple reading approaches. The Lindamood-Bell Lips program, Seeing Stars program and Visualizing and Verbalizing program. I am a trainer of Read Well by Marilynn Sprick. These multi-sensory approaches are research based and target the the 5 components of a solid reading foundation: phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, comprehension and vocabulary.
