Why did you decide to become a CALT?

As a former high school English teacher who knew very little about dyslexia, I taught scores of students who did not know how to read and hated school because of that. It broke my heart, but I had no idea how to help them. Since becoming a trained dyslexia therapist and CALT, my eyes and heart have been opened to our community of dyslexic kiddos who, because of Take Flight, have a chance to see just how capable and strong and smart they really are.

Favorite moment working with dyslexic students?

Some of my most cherished moments have been when the parents of my students call me to share that their child just read out loud in front of others for the first time because they WANTED to! How amazing is that? Effective instruction gives our students a new confidence and a new love for learning that will carry them for the rest of their lives.

Your goal when working with kids with dyslexia?

First and foremost, I want my students to understand that dyslexia is not a curse, and it’s nothing that is “their fault.” Dyslexia can be their superpower, and I want them to understand what exactly dyslexia is and how they can learn strategies to help them be the boss of dyslexia rather than the other way around.

Your teaching style, personality?

I want my students to have fun while they learn! I am a fan of incorporating games, silly strategies to help students remember what we’ve learned, and celebrating every win, big or small. My expectations for my kiddos are high because I know how smart they are, so one way that I show them how much I love them is by holding them to a high standard; and what those standards are vary from student to student- what works for one student may not work for another and the pace that one student needs may not be appropriate for another student, so it’s my job to differentiate that for each unique individual.

Any family details?

My wonderful husband and I have two precious little boys who keep us on our toes and fill our house with joy.
