Spring Branch ISD is fortunate to have regular education itinerate dyslexia teachers to provide mulitisensory strategies and instruction to help build skillful readers, writers, and spellers for students that have characteristics of dyslexia. I am fortunate to be one of those teachers here at Frostwood. We hope to help students in all grade levels build their confidence through positive interactions and instruction in phonological awareness, spelling, and fluency in reading and writing. We have been trained by speech pathologists, Neuhaus trainers, specialists and experts from around the country that demonstrate at the International and Houston Dyslexia conferences, Regions IV, and Region X. SBISD provides us with monthly staff development training throughout the year guided by our supervisor, Dr. Patricia Oliver and language arts director, Diane Fanning. Our teaching resources provide for a variety of needs because every dyslexic student learns in a different way and requires different strategies to build their language arts skills.
Brenda Banker has been a classroom teacher in SBISD, a language arts and math resource teacher, a Reading Recovery teacher, and a dyslexia specialist.
