Why did you decide to become a CALT?

I enjoy teaching multisensory instruction to reluctant readers. Once I became an Instructional Specialist, I had the pleasure of going through Take Flight Training. The program is amazing and I saw huge impact on my students. I decided to become a Certified Academic Language Therapist to not only educate myself but to support struggling readers.

Favorite moment working with dyslexic students?

My favorite moments working with dyslexic students are when the “ah ha” moment happens. Students understands how coding and syllable division helps them read more fluently. I also love seeing my former students come back to tell their success stories going through the Take Flight program.

Your goal when working with kids with dyslexia?

My goal is to help students build more confidence and feel more successful.

Your teaching style, personality?

I love structure and consistency.
I like to get to know the students’ interests and motivate them by using various strategies. I am fun, but stern when needed. I build in quick brain breaks when needed to motivate the students.

Any family details?

I am married and have 1 daughter. We are active and enjoy adventures. We like to go camping, fishing, and kayaking. My side of the family lives in Oklahoma, so we do weekend trips to visit them often.

Any extra anecdotal info you want to add?

I moved to Oklahoma when I was 8 years old from Korea. I am fluent in Korean.
I am a full time Dyslexia Therapist in Plano ISD and also on the Training Team as a QI-in training. I enjoy working with students and assisting other new Therapists in training.
