Bio

Thank you for responding to my profile on Wyzant.
I have a passion for teaching. Sometimes I think I'm more excited than a student when they make progress. I taught reading for 30+ years in public schools, and have experience with students in grades K-6. I keep current by attending the annual KSRA (Keystone State Reading Association) conference, and by going to Butler Lawrence Mercer Reading Council meetings.

Thank you for responding to my profile on Wyzant.
I have a passion for teaching. Sometimes I think I'm more excited than a student when they make progress. I taught reading for 30+ years in public schools, and have experience with students in grades K-6. I keep current by attending the annual KSRA (Keystone State Reading Association) conference, and by going to Butler Lawrence Mercer Reading Council meetings. I also watch professional webinars, and read professional books and journals. I am a certified Orton-Gillingham instructor.
One of the most important factors to a student's success is motivating him, so I want to know about a student's interests inside and outside of school. I also feel that working with the classroom teacher helps the student succeed. My goal is not only helping a student get through the school year, but to make him become independent and responsible for his own learning.

Recently, I became a Certified Dyslexia Screener by attending a seminar presented by Sue Barton, creator of the Barton Reading and Spelling System.
