MY TEACHING STYLE

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Teaching awards are only effective if the students are succeeding. My inner city 6th-grade students scored a 51% improvement on the ITBS scores from the year before. My 4th and 6th-grade students scored the top awards in the Fresh Air Science Fair three years in a year - competing with 88 other schools and scored by scientists, educators, and community business people. (When I was asked while attending a state legislative meeting how I teach science so effectively, I responded, "I don't teach science effectively, but I do teach reading effectively. The students have the tools to succeed." Pat Doran's Phonics Steps to Reading Success materials are being used by 5 teacher-training courses for Rio Salado

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

Learned to read effectively and efficiently as part of a 1st-grade class in 1948 where explicit, systematic, direct instruction of phonics was taught. All but 2 students were ready to read at the 2nd-grade level. This was the key beginning of my education history. Over the past 67 years as teacher of students from K-college and student of both required and independent my focus was always on seeking out the most effective strategies while sifting out and rejecting ineffective ones.

Phonics instruction has been proven to be most effective in helping students who have been labeled as “dyslexic” • Course author and adjunct literacy instructor of Rio Salado College Courses: 2001- Present o Edu270AA, Elementary Reading and Decoding o Edu270AB, Secondary Reading and Decoding • Founder and CEO of Edu-Steps, Inc., a company providing strategies for teachers, educators, parents, and students • Founder and CEO of The Freedom Reading Foundation, Inc. a non-profit corporation whose future mission is the fighting of illiteracy through education of educational professionals, parents, grandparents, youth workers, and concerned citizens. • Author of Pat Doran’s Phonics Steps to Reading Success :A Fast-Paced, Word-Attack System for Developing and Improving Reading Skills, 5th Edition. • Author of The Secret Club: Why and How We Must Teach Phonics and Essential Literacy Skills to Readers of All Ages.She is an effective teacher, trainer, author, dynamic conference speaker, and a champion for promoting literacy and eliminating illiteracy. • Author of 102 Steps to a Better You, wise and practical sayings which students can use as hooks on which to hang on to in making their day-to-day, minute-by-minute decisions. • Taught in-person college classes for remedial reading college students. • Serves as private tutor for children and adults. Began her career in education in 1964, teaching elementary classes in grades 4-6. She took a hiatus to raise four children, re-entering education as a K-8 elementary school librarian where she remained for eight years. She has worked primarily with inner city minority students of low-socio economic backgrounds, many of whom were English learners. A few years prior to her retirement, she returned to the classroom. Her students won all top Fresh Air Science Fair awards at Phoenix College, Phoenix, Arizona for three years in a row. When asked how she taught science so effectively, Mrs. Doran said, “I don’t teach science. I teach reading. The students [then] are capable of great achievement on their own.” Her sixth-grade, the inner-city class was skilled academically, averaging 51% SAT9 test score improvement in one year. • Former president of the Board of Directors of The John Corcoran Foundation, Inc.

She adamantly believes that we must aggressively attack this problem for the safety and prosperity of our country’s future. There are no excuses, no other options. Pat is helping those stuck in the mire of illiteracy to get out, to change direction, and to find their way on a successful life’s journey through reading. She encourages those who can read to help and to share this invaluable gift with others. • Classroom instructor/consultant for English learners • Conference and professional-seminar speaker • Educational consultant and teacher trainer
