Creating Community: Alameda Parents Share their Stories @ Portland
Sep 11 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Presentation by: Marty Stockton & Stacey Katz, parents

Marty Stockton is a mother of a sixth grader with dyslexia and a fourth grader. Marty works for the City of Portland at the Bureau of Planning and Sustainability and enjoys hiking and road trips with her family.

Stacey Katz is mom to Lucas a fourth grader and Mack a rambunctious 4-month-old black lab. We can often be found on a mountain snowboarding or camping next to any water source.

Learn about how to become a parent mentor and/or advocate at your school. Parents from Alameda Elementary School in NE Portland will share their experience in creating community. Their vision is to bring families together to: share information, offer family and student support through shared experiences, and empower, celebrate and create awareness of this learning difference. Information will be presented on the origin of the Alameda Dyslexia Community, its structure, successes, challenges and lessons from the group’s first eight months.
