Welcome to a new school year!
 
I am so excited to begin working with students at MSI. Students who are identified with Dyslexia meet with me four days per week for 30 to 45 minute small group pullout sessions. Taylor ISD has selected The Wilson Reading System to meet the reading, spelling and writing needs of students identified with Dyslexia. The Wilson program focuses on systematically teaching students how to read and write in a multisensory way. Specific areas of focus include: decoding, reading fluency, comprehension, vocabulary, spelling and writing structure. All students begin at Step 1 and complete the program at the end of Step 12. Each step is comprised of skill sets that a student must master in order to progress to the next level or step.
 
Two very important ways to support your child at home are reading their Reading Counts library book and practicing their high frequency/spelling words each evening (7 days per week). If you need more guidance on specific learning strategies to help your child, please let me know.
 
Thank you for sending me your wonderful children. I am your child’s learning advocate and I take that responsibility very seriously. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to call, email, or write me a note. Let me know how I can help you!!
