About the Presenter:
Michelle Breitenbach has been a private online dyslexic practitioner for two years and a supporter of the homeschool community. She trains others to "DROP the TECH and CONNECT. When the pandemic came, she saw the need to help others learn how to keep things simple. She began holding workshops and creating free games and editable resources, included movement breaks, and could be played online or in-person.
Michelle takes her practical experience that she has learned online (courtesy of her students ) and combines it with what she learned as a special educator in Sudbury, Massachusetts. She delivers information-packed, light-hearted, easy to follow training for teachers, with a splash of humor!
Michelle's dream is to continue to support and promote the positive sides of online teaching, so kids with dyslexia will have increased access to qualified instructors and more flexible schedules regardless of location.
