Dr. Kathryn Garforth is passionate about every child's #RightToRead. As a dyslexic and the parent of a dyslexic she has a personal connection to the struggles students face. Her teacher training program did not provide the training to teach children like her how to read. She's determined to spread awareness about best practices for teaching reading.
I hold a BA and MA in history from CSU, Fresno. I hold a Multiple Subjects credential. In 2000, I was trained as a Literacy Coach and worked in that capacity for 4 years in junior high. For the past 16 years, I’ve been the high school Reading Specialist, as well as an English and History teacher.
I just started the Twitter account and that’s really all I’m working with— I will be adding things to YouTube and IG.
