Christy Ellison

Welcome to dyslexia! Your child's sense of touch, sight, and hearing will be activated daily in order to rewire their brain. In my class we will use MTA, which is an Orton-Gillingham multisensory teaching approach to learning to read, write and spell. My name is Christy Ellison and I am one of the lead dyslexia therapists in Grand Prarie ISD. This year begins my 24th year in the field of education. I recently graduated from Concordia University in Austin, Texas with an Advanced Literacy degree in reading. I am thrilled to be returning to De Zavala Elementary and I look forward to a successful year with your child building relationships and trust. The ultimate goal I have for each of my students is to become risk-takers. I want each child that enters my classroom to feel safe and confident. In parternship with your child's classroom teacher, I know we can grow an independent reader that has the skills to move forward in their reading journey.
