Instructor of the Quarter
In 2005, when her daughter struggled in kindergarten, Theresa Jurisch began studying dyslexia. She now has library of books and has earned tutor and screening certifications. She passionately works with parents and adults to help them gain an understanding of dyslexia and advocate for their children. Dyslexia affects 10 to 20% of the population and is invisible to the untrained eye. Children can be identified as early as kindergarten.
Her community education classes help others understand dyslexia (what it is and is not), what it is like to be dyslexic and what current technologies are available that will support a dyslexic student. Theresa coaches parents and teachers in the Orton-Gillingham methodology to tutor dyslexic students. This fall, Theresa will complete a master’s level certification.
Theresa and her two children (both with dyslexia) are active in pursuing legislative changes to state laws as part of the Decoding Dyslexia MN movement and recently spoke at the Capital to raise awareness. She gives back to the community, so others may not struggle to find answers.
