I am a dyslexia therapist because my little boy has dyslexia. I opened a school to help other kids

“He came to visit me from Ocean Springs.”

“I teach high school biology. Teaching gives me a chance to go backpacking and hiking in the Rocky Mountains every summer. I went to Canyonlands and Moab a few weeks ago. I love the West.”

“I was a high school English teacher and now I am a dyslexia therapist because my little boy has dyslexia. There was no help here, so I went back to school and opened the Renaissance Center to help other kids. I wanted to change my child’s life. We started with five students and now have 38 kids. We created our own curriculum and now we get kids other schools don’t know what to do with. They are all reading and learning and curious. We are about to build a building because we have so many kids on the waiting list. I teach the middle schoolers and high schoolers no one else wants and I have a smart mouth now. A lot of people thought we would fail. We will never make a lot of money, but what we are doing is working. Today a little boy brought his journal of poems and he couldn’t read a year ago. We opened about 20 months ago. Before that, I was a stay-at-home, homeschooling mom with five kids. I love instilling curiosity. My world changed and I had this idea in my head and started the center. Now I am thankful my son is dyslexic because I would never have done this without him.”
