Guest Speaker: Cheryl Stradling, M.S. Ed. and Amanda Shearer, M.S. Ed

Topic: What a Multi-sensory School looks like and how teachers with Orton-Gillingham Training Teach Children with Dyslexia

Cheryl Stradling, M.S. Ed.

 Throughout my 44 years in continuing education at various universities, I have learned that the veteran special educator is the one who will make the difference for children. It is just not the degrees obtained, but the intense classroom experience using only research based instruction that will better educate the student. I am a teacher who is trained in the Orton-Gillingham and Phono-graphix Programs. I acknowledge that it is the multi-sensory approach to learning that will engage each child throughout their day. Being certified in “Visualizing & Verbalizing” and all other strands from the Project Read Program, I have the skill set to be the Educational Administrator of Glenwood Academy! (A love that I founded in August 2011. ) I wake up each morning saying, “I am going to make a difference today”. That is why I continued staying in the classroom since 1974.

Amanda Shearer, M.S. Ed: 

As  a teacher, it is important that we are life-long learners, as it is our job to be dedicated, resourceful and goal-driven educators with a commitment to the social and academic growth and development of every child. It is our job to also be accommodating to individuals and to develop inspiring hands-on lessons that will breed success. In order to accomplish these goals and become the best possible teacher, I continued my education by becoming trained and certified in programs such as Orton- Gillingham, Project Read and Linda Mood Bell’s Visualizing & Verbalizing. With these multi-sensory programs, we can better meet the learning style needs of all children.
