Dyslexia Intervention Program
It is an honor to be the Dyslexia Interventionist at Shafer Elementary. It is my goal to work with every student as they strive to become a better reader, writer and speller. My heart's passion is teaching struggling readers how to succeed and to raise their self-confidence. Over 15 years as an educator, I have observed the positive impact that small group intervention has made in the lives of many students. As a Katy ISD Dyslexia Interventionist I will strive to provide a student-centered environment that inspires lifelong learners who positively impact the world.
I grew up in New Orleans and moved to Katy 8 years ago, and have been at Shafer for the past 4 years. I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education and my Master’s Degree in Educational Administration from the University of New Orleans. I also have minors in child psychology and math, as well as receiving my ESL certification. As a classroom teacher, I’ve taught kindergarten, first, second, third, fourth, 6th-8th grade students with emotional and behavioral disorders, deaf education and art. I have also completed my principalships in both elementary and secondary education.
Dyslexia has always played a huge role in my life, as I have a special love and passion for teaching students who learn differently. I am anxious to have another amazing year teaching and learning with your child!
