My Students

My students are amazing humans who want to achieve and succeed on a daily basis. I am fortunate to work at an urban public elementary school which offers two unique programs of instruction, serving 4th through 8th grades. Some of my students are part of our French immersion program, while others participate in our Montessori program. Students at my school represent the city in which we live. They are highly diverse, creative and intelligent.

The students I teach require individual services due to disabilities or disorders which cause barriers to accessing typical content.

Over the past few years, I have seen an increased population of children identified as having Dyslexia. My students want to learn, improve their academics and succeed. As an educator, I want for nothing less than to provide them with the opportunities to do just that.

My Project

I am a special educator and instructional interventionist who has seen a significant increase in the identification of students with dyslexia. Dyslexia is a learning disorder that involves difficulty reading due to problems identifying speech sounds and learning how they relate to letters and words (decoding).

In general, public schools do not have the funding or staff to design interventions specifically for dyslexia.

Students tend to be put in general reading intervention or teachers are expected to address reading deficits in class. Unfortunately, students with dyslexia have unique deficits that need to be addressed with unique interventions.

This year, I asked a friend who is trained in the DuBard Association Method to volunteer with select students and have witnessed great success. LEAP is a modified DuBard Association Method® curriculum designed for students with challenges in reading, spelling and/or written language (dyslexia), or who exhibit difficulty rhyming, sounding out words, and blending sounds into words.

With this donation, I may begin a transformation within my student services department to provide modern interventions targeted toward our growing population of students with dyslexia.
