My Students

I am a dyslexia intervention teacher in a small, rural, east Texas town. I use an explicit systematic phonics program utilizing a multisensory approach. My students come to my classroom in small groups for instruction.

My students are faced with daily challenges as they struggle with reading and writing.

Many of them feel defeated by the time they are identified with dyslexia. I want to find new and engaging ways to ensure that they can learn and be successful by fostering a risk-free, loving, encouraging classroom environment. Each one of my students is unique and special and I strive to help them see that in themselves!

My Project

I teach the brightest students who unfortunately are reluctant readers. Many of my students come to me feeling defeated because they have struggled with reading for so long. As we work on our dyslexia intervention program, I want to instill in them a lifelong love of reading. I want my students to become comfortable and confident readers!

My students need a comfortable relaxing area to read in while working on fluency and comprehension.

This soft rug and the comfy chairs will provide a safe cozy area for my students to practice the reading skills we are working on. This practice will help build their confidence as they go back into their classrooms with their peers.
