Throughout my 19 years of teaching, I’ve been fascinated by the process of teaching reading and working with struggling readers. I taught Reading Recovery® for 6 years, and then completed my Reading Specialist. In 2014, I completed an Associate Level course in the Orton Gillingham Approach. Soon after, I became trained in Empower Reading™ when it was piloted in the York Region. I am currently working as a SERT, and have completed my Special Education Specialist.
Throughout all these experiences, I have learned more about teaching reading and how to meet the needs of struggling readers. My hope for this blog is to spread awareness of different approaches to teaching reading in order to meet these needs.
Hope you join me along my learning journey!
