I taught in the elementary school classroom, I was a tutor in a school setting, and a private Orton Gillingham tutor. I am currently the Director of the Learning Resource Center at an elementary school. I am a language coach and Fellow in Training through the Orton Gillingham Academy.
I make my lessons fun and engaging without losing the Orton principles. All of my materials on TPT are designed with a systematic, cognitive, multi-sensory approach to learning.
Yet to be added
I have a BA from Davidson College. I am working towards my Masters in Special Education. I completed both the associate level and certified level Orton Gillingham training through AOGPE. I am a Fellow-in-Training (OGA), a certified academic language practitioner (ALTA), and a certified academic language practitioner (IDA).
I am the president of the board of the NC International Dyslexia Association. My mission in my TPT store is to provide quality Orton materials to educators around the world. A portion of every sale on my site goes to the International Dyslexia Association for the research of and spreading awareness of dyslexia. Follow me on Instagram @ortongillinghammama
