Special education resource teacher and reading specialist for nearly 20 years. I've taught all grades, but I'm currently a reading specialist in a middle school (grades 6-8). I'm certified in elementary ed, special ed and as a reading specialist. I'm also trained as and Orton-Gillingham educator through the Academy of Orton-Gillingham Practitioners and Educators (AOGPE).
I take a structured, multi-sensory approach to working with students with dyslexia and other reading difficulties. Learning activities that are fun and hands-on are usually the most effective.

Mama to 9 year old twin girls (one with dyslexia) and 21 year old son! I've been using TpT for years, yet just recently realized I have an abundance of my own materials to share! I work with older students who struggle in reading, so I've needed to create materials and activities that are age-appropriate and not cutesy-looking. Preteens and teenagers detest "babyish" materials, but often need the content when just learning to read and spell with a structured language approach.
