About Karen S.
Experienced Reading Specialist Trained in the methodologies of Orton-Gillingham
I have been a Reading Specialist in MCPS for 24 years. Prior to working in MCPS, I taught first and second students. Recently, I was trained in the methodologies of Orton-Gillingham which is a multi-sensory approach to teaching reading. I enjoy working with students and fostering the love of reading and writing. I have witnessed the benefits of individualized instruction and the impact it has on the confidence of a child as they grow as a learner.
