I am excited to say that this is my 19th year to teach and my 7th year of teaching the MTA Dyslexia Program at Cumberland Academy. I was a reading, writing and social studies teacher at another district for 12 years where I taught Kindergarten, 2nd grade and 3rd grade. I am certified to teach Kindergarten-8th grade and I am ESL certified also. The MTA program incorporates visual, auditory, and kinesthetic aspects of learning the sounds and letters. We do reading, spelling, handwriting and dictionary skills. We learn how to decode and code words to help with reading and spelling. We use cursive handwriting in the MTA class also.
