Why did you decide to become a CALT?

As an Instructional Specialist, I was able to support reluctant readers. During this time, I was able to obtain Take Flight Training and learned about Dyslexia. The research and outcomes of the program gained my interest in becoming a CALT.

Favorite moment working with dyslexic students?

I enjoy seeing my former students who come to visit and share their success stories. The “ah ha” moments during therapy sessions are one of my most favorite moments. When the student realizes the process of coding and how to use it to help them decode unfamiliar words.

Your goal when working with kids with dyslexia?

My goal is to help my students become more confident with reading.

Your teaching style, personality?

Structure is key to success. I like to get to know my students interest and incorporate rewards when needed. I add in brain breaks as needed. I can be stern when necessary, but also make learning engaging and fun.

Any family details?

I have 1 daughter who keep me and my husband very busy. We enjoy adventures. Fishing, camping, and kayaking are few things we do when the weather permits. We love taking a quick trip to Oklahoma to visit my side of the family on the weekends.

Any extra anecdotal info you want to add?

I am bilingual. Korean is my first language. I moved to the U.S. when I was 8 years old. I hope to visit Korea one day with my family.
