Leslie Weber - Dyslexia
This is my 18th year in Education and my 3rd year as a Dyslexia Teacher. I taught 1st grade for 1 year and 2nd grade for 14 years. I have been married 15 years and have 2 boys ages 16 and 11. One of my children has Dyslexia which gives me great insight into what it is like for my students and parents on a daily basis. I also struggled with learning myself and was retained in 3rd grade. I am pretty sure if they tested for Dyslexia when I was a child, I would have been diagnosed with it as well. I have a great sense of understanding when it comes to struggling as a learner and I always tell my students this to help them understand they can overcome it and be a successful adult. I believe that all our students need is someone to believe in them, encourage them, and gently push them when needed to achieve their goals. They are each AMAZING individuals that are going to be something GREAT and INSPIRE others when they grow up. I absolutely love working with Dyslexic students!!!!
