Character - It's how you live life when no one is looking.

 

This is my 9th year here at World Compass Academy! For the past 8 years I was a first grade teacher as well as a kindergarten teacher last year. Before teaching at WCA I have taught various grade levels as well as worked with students with dyslexia.

 

I enjoy helping students become better readers and find books they are interested in reading! I earned my national certificate as a Certified Academic Language Therapist (CALT) in 2009, working in a small group setting providing systematic instruction for students with the identification of dyslexia in grades 1-8. I am certified in MTA (Mulitsensory Teaching Approach) as well as the Take Flight curriculum through Scottish Rite Hospital. I am excited to add the BUILD curriculum certification through Scottish Rite to my "reading tools" to help students with their reading skills. I completed my Masters in Literacy in August 2020! 

 

I enjoy a good cup of coffee, Junior Mints, flavored seltzer water and of course READING :) My daughters are avid readers and are always introducing me to new books to read or sharing what they've learned from what they've read. 

 

I look forward to working with the students at WCA to help them improve their reading skills!

 

Sincerely,

Dawn C. Morris, MA, CALT
