Navigating Special Education @ Portland
Mar 6 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

by Morgan Bulson, MS, National Board Certified Teacher

Morgan is a special education teacher with over 10 years of experience working in public and charter schools both in New York City, and in Oregon.  Morgan became more interested in dyslexia when she encountered bright students through her work that weren’t able to read and write at a rate that matched their intelligence.  With little training about dyslexia in her formal education, she began to seek out information and resources on her own.  Morgan is passionate about working with kids and families with dyslexia, and helping to foster productive discourse between families and schools.

Special programming: Book Club Discussion from 6 – 7 pm. Parents and Educators are invited to meet and discuss: Unlocking Literacy: Effective Decoding and Spelling Instruction, Second Edition by Marcia Henry.
