Hi! I'm Michelle! I teach structured literacy lessons full of movement, games, and multi-sensory fun!
I also coach teachers on how to engage students online with minimal tech! I'll see you in the Zoom Room!
My passion is...
Welcome! I love working as a dyslexia practitioner and early literacy teacher. During the pandemic I started supporting reading teachers and tutors! My mission is to continue to show the positive sides of online teaching. I aim to provide strategies to engage extra wiggly students, manage behavior, and have successful structured literacy lessons wherever you are teaching from.
Currently and prior to the mass closing of schools, I worked as an online dyslexia practitioner, home school consultant, early literacy interventionist, and private academic evaluator. I have provided training and free resources to thousands of teachers globally and supported schools on how to engage and motivate children while teaching online. I hold interactive workshops to show effective methods and strategies to preserve educational progress. Whether you are a parent or teacher/tutor, I can't wait to meet you in the ZOOM ROOM!
