Katie was awarded Teacher of the Year in 2020 before becoming a reading specialist and literacy coach. She has worked with teachers and students in North Carolina and Virginia to improve literacy instruction and engagement. Her favorite literacy topic involves the brain science around learning to read words. Katie has been trained in the Orton-Gillingham approach and LETRS. She is certified in PreK-6 Elementary with reading specialist and social studies endorsements for K-12.
