Reading and writing growth for all types of students

I have a master's degree in special education. I am also a certified Orton-Gillingham reading tutor. My favorite part of teaching has always been watching a student suddenly take off with a skill, sometimes after hours or weeks of slow progress. The joy and pride a child feels when they ?get it,? when their hard work starts to pay off, is exciting and rewarding.

I link words by theme and category, as in words related to occupations, types of behavior, or foods. I also link words by their function in language, such as prepositional words. I have never had a student who could not increase their vocabulary through understanding these connec [more]
