My name is Beth and I am a Montessori Teacher in the process of becoming a Reading Specialist. I am also an Orton Gillingham tutor, which is a method for dyslexic children to learn how to read, write and spell.
In my work with dyslexic children, I've discovered ways that work well for typically developing children to increase their reading skills as well. I love, love, love working with children who are learning to read and who are having difficulties learning to read. It's what gets me going in the morning.
As I progress through this year, I'll be posting more about my classroom, the children, and their journey as 5 and 6 yr olds into reading, as well as my own journey towards discovering what it really means to be a "reading specialist".
