My book: Dyslexia: A Teacher's Journey

Why did I labor off and on for at least five years, spending hundreds of hours on this book?  Certainly, not for money.  I have a story lived through soon to be 43 years of working with persons with dyslexia and their families.

Many books on dyslexia have been written by victims of dyslexia, parents, and professionals engaged in research and teaching at the university level.  I meet none of those qualifications.  I am a retired public schools teacher, current tutor in private practice, am nearing 43 years as Executive Director of a 501c3 community organization for identifying, teaching, and advocating for persons with dyslexia.  With this background, I write with experience as one who has been on the "battle fields" and in some of the battles.  Some of my battles to fight indifference, misinformation, and a lack of effective teaching methods are included.  The reader can feel the anger, rejection, and stress as it relates to myself as well as the victims and their families.  While an advocate for persons with dyslexia, I understand some of the constraints under which teachers must work.  They have stress,too.

Each of us was created for a purpose. I found my purpose.  I feel as much of a missionary as if I were working in a foreign land.

More in future blogs.  I solicit your experiences.
