ABOUT ME

Hello I am Patricia Smith and I have worked in the field of Education for over 20 years in a wide variety of settings. 

My career in Education started as a Homeschool Educator teaching my own children.  When my second child was diagnosed with Dyslexia I began a journey that led me to learn how to teach students with Dyslexia to read and to support parents and teachers on their own journeys of discovery.  My focus on understanding a student’s profile through listening and data collection allows me to immediately make a difference in the life of your child by providing explicit reading instruction.
