Faculty - Dyslexia Specialists - Dyslexia Specialist

Why did you come to Louisiana Key Academy?
My daughter was officially diagnosed with dyslexia in 2004.  I went on a search to find out all that I could about dyslexia.  We placed her in the Mason's dyslexic program for 3 years. I was then offered an opportunity to begin a program at St. Alphonsus School.   I used the Barton Reading and Spelling system to help students struggling in reading. I enjoyed working with those students and seeing them become confident and successful.  I was removed from the program three years ago and when I found out about LKA, I wanted to see how it worked.  I scheduled an appointment with Ms. G and, as the saying goes, the rest is history. I am looking forward to helping LKA scholars become confident and successful.

What's your favorite thing about teaching?
I love watching the students learn.  Seeing the "light bulb go off" is one of the best feelings in the world.

What was your favorite subject in school?
My favorite subject in school was reading

What's your favorite vacation spot?
My favorite vacation spot is a cabin in the mountains.

When I'm not at school, I like to...
read, and spend time with my family and friends.

What's your perfect pizza?
My favorite pizza is light on the sauce, heavy on the cheese, with beef, sausage, bacon, and ham.

What's your favorite book? Why?
The Five People You Meet in Heaven is my favorite book.  I would like to think that I will be able to meet the people that have influenced me and those that I have been able to influence.

Who is your hero?
My Dad

What's the weirdest thing about you?
I am a Little Free Library steward.   I have a free library in my front yard.

What's your favorite knock-knock joke?
It's not a true knock - knock joke, but "Why is 6 afraid of 7?  Because 7, 8 (ate) 9"
