Laura Rogers and Emily Johansson are Children's Room Reading Specialists committed to helping the children in our community experience reading success. (Read More).
“We love our job. I mean really love our job, and we work hard because we are passionate about putting books in the hands of children. We pride ourselves on being early literacy experts and advocates.”
“My dream is to keep changing the future of these children, to end the stigma of dyslexia, to make ‘ear-reading’ a part of every teacher’s vocabulary, to support multisensory reading instruction for our entire community of dyslexic readers, and to increase understanding of neurodiversity.”
