Hi, my name is Christi Perkins. I have been teaching for 22 years. I am excited to begin this school year at Spring Hill Intermediate teaching students with dyslexia. Dyslexia is a learning disability in reading, writing, or spelling despite adequate or above average intelligence. This year, I will be teaching with the MTA program (Multisensory Teaching Approach). Multisensory instruction teaches to more than one sense (visual, auditory, tactile) at a time. Multisensory instruction gives kids more than one way to make connections and learn.
