Dyslexia Seminars Across the Country
Throughout this winter and into next spring, I’m on the road for the Bureau of Educational Research, presenting a national seminar on dyslexia. The seminar focuses on what dyslexia is, what it isn’t, and how teachers can support striving readers in their general education K-6 classrooms as well as prevent reading difficulties from happening in the first place. The seminar is sea to shining sea (and beyond), from Portland, Maine to Honolulu, Hawaii. Meeting so many wonderful teachers in so many great states is the best part of all!
Back to School: Divine Mercy, a new partner, and St. Stephen’s, my 4th year!
As the new school year begins, I’m happy to announce I’ll be working another year with the children and staff of St. Stephen’s School in Harrisburg, PA. Love those kids and teachers! I am also pleased to collaborate with two elementary schools near Johnstown, PA: Divine Mercy Academy East and West. The icing on all the cakes is the enthusiasm the teachers have for our collective instructional focus: Kid Writing and Writers’ Workshop. Wonderful!
