What inspires my work with students:

  • I feel very lucky to be part of ETB team. Helping kids with reading difficulties is very rewarding for me. My son is dyslexic and before my husband and I knew it, our journey was not easy for us as parents and to my son. He was diagnosed with dyslexia in 5th grade and since that moment I felt a great responsibility to help other kids with reading difficulties. Looking at my son’s progress, as well as the progress of my students through the Orton-Gillingham approach, and seeing how they can connect letters and sounds makes me feel happy.
