Ann Marie's Challenge - Join the Georgia Peachrunners or Donate to Support IDA's Mission!
Welcome to my TeamQuest Personal Page!
I have committed to participating in the TeamQuest Challenge in New Orleans the weekend of March 3-4, 2018. I am raising funds and encouraging others to join the IDA Georgia Peachrunners so that we can support the International Dyslexia Association (IDA) in its efforts to create a better future for all children and adults who struggle with dyslexia. IDA Georgia is committed to designating funds to help raise awareness, provide information and support, and bring teacher training in structured literacy to areas across the state of Georgia.
I have been working with IDA since 2001 and students with dyslexia since 1991. Through this, I have heard personal stories from hundreds of students, parents, and adults - and educators in the trenches desperately trying to understand bright students who struggle so much with reading, spelling, and writing.
We must keep working to help dispel myths and educate communities on what dyslexia REALLY is and how structured literacy in the classroom can prevent many students from facing frustration and humiliation. Our dyslexic students have so much potential, but there are those who feel so beaten down during their school years. It doesn’t have to be that way!
I have committed to participating in the 1/2 marathon and raising $2,200 for IDA. Will you support my efforts?
