Emily GibbonsM.Ed. Orton-Gillingham practitioner (IMSLEC) The Literacy NestOwner
Educator for 16 years, mother of four, OG private tutor, Curriculum writer
I have been working with children from ages 1-12 since 1996 in a variety of settings. I started out as a daycare teacher working my way through college to become an elementary classroom teacher. My first class was a spunky group of third graders from the Boston area, back in 2000. I taught third and fourth during most of my twelve years of teaching, as well as fifth grade in the summer. My Master’s degree in Curriculum, Instruction and Literacy sparked my passion to create and design classroom materials. But my true love was helping children become successful readers.
I had a thirst for knowledge. How do I teach struggling readers and kids with dyslexia to learn how to read? My mission began back in 2003 and I haven’t stopped. My Orton-Gillingham certification through an IMSLEC accredited program transformed me.
