I have been in the Elementary Special Education field for 14 years serving various roles including a Special Education Teacher, Tutor, Literacy Coach, MTSS Coordinator, Educational Consultant and Special Education Administrator. As a certified Reading Specialist, trained in using the Orton Gillingham approach, I have a strong passion for teaching young children how to read. I've taught children in grades Pre-k to 5th in the suburbs of Philadelphia to the heart of Chicago!
My teaching style is very multi-sensory. I love incorporating hands-on learning activities and manipulative based instruction. I am a firm believer in differentiation and center's based instruction to ensure that all students are receiving the proper interventions to help them SMILE and LEARN!
I am currently a Supervisor of Special Education in the Spring-Ford Area School District. I absolutely love helping teachers analyze data in order to provide proper interventions for struggling students in the general education setting.

My name is Amy (Wienckowski) Hiller, and I created Wink Smile Learn because I am a firm believer that everyone learns differently. I am a strong advocate for inclusion, co-teaching and sensory integration. I love collecting and sharing ideas with other teachers. It is my passion to create fun and engaging resources to share with this amazing teaching and parent community to help our children learn & grow!
