A Juilliard graduate with a degree in Voice and Language Studies, I went on to get an M.Ed. in Elementary Education with a emphasis on Primary Reading.
Katie Garner, M.Ed. is an internationally known author, keynote speaker, and consultant with over twenty years of classroom experience and a passion for infusing neuroscience into literacy learning. Her "backdoor-to-the-brain" approach to phonemic skill mastery via the affective learning domain shifts the paradigm of early grade skill instruction and has gained national recognition with the No Child Left Behind, Reading First, and RTI Initiatives. As a featured and keynote speaker at literacy conferences across the United States and abroad—including an ongoing keynote series for the Vulnerable Readers Summits with literacy leaders, Dr. Richard Allington (What Really Matters for Struggling Readers) and Dr. Anne Cunningham (The National Early Literacy Panel/NELP Report)—Katie shares game-changing strategies for boosting existing literacy instruction with the latest neural research on how our brains learn best. Her practical and proven methods for bringing neuroscience into the forefront of literacy learning, as shared at Harvard's Learning and the Brain Research Consortium, have been heralded in educational journals as "teaching teachers a 'new way' to teach" and is the subject of an upcoming professional development book series.
