5th/6th Grade Dyslexia Teacher/RTI Math
It is my privilege to be here at Gilbert Intermediate School for year number 5! We are excited for the adventures that await us this school year! I am super excited to be teaching dyslexia curriculum and working with students who may be struggling in math.
I have a beautiful family who are my world! My husband, Brent Chambers, and I share 5 children: my son, Garrett Spence and his wife, Melanie; my son, Ty Spence and his wife, Macy; daughter Mayci Johnston and her husband Cody; daughter Hillari Keesee and her husband, Karlton, and son, Lane Chambers and his wife, Brittany. I am also proud that both of my sons, Garrett and Ty, graduated from Tarleton State University. Go TEXANS! I am affectionately known as "Lili" by 9 grandchildren! I love my family!!!!
Teaching is my passion! There is no greater joy than witnessing a child make progress and learn something new every day. Not many people can wake up every day and go to work at a job they absolutely love. I love what I do and am looking forward to being a part of your child's educational journey!
SISD Dyslexia Intervention Program (DIP)
The Dyslexia Intervention Program (DIP), written by ESC Region 4, is a multi-sensory curriculum based on Orton-Gillingham and other sources including Scottish Rite Dyslexia Programs and Neuhaus. It teaches phonics and the structure of the English language through reading, writing, spelling, and verbal and written expression in all 146 lessons.
As a comprehensive language arts program, DIP is aligned to the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) and can be taught to individuals, small groups, or in the classroom. Lesson components include alphabet activities, review of the reading deck, review of the spelling deck, new concept, reading practice, handwriting, spelling, review of previously learned skills, listening and verbal expression (including phonological awareness), reading comprehension, writing activities, and study skills.
This program contains all the Critical, Evidence-Based Components of Dyslexia Instruction listed in The Dyslexia Handbook-Revised 2014 and addresses Texas state law requirements for students with dyslexia.
