Welcome to my Page!
Welcome to the Dyslexia Resource Page. In July of 2018, Senate Enrolled Act No. 217 was voted in to law. This requires school corporations to screen all students, K-2 for characteristics of Dyslexia. This law also required school corporations to employ an individual trained in Dyslexia. It is my honor and privilege to serve the students, families, and teachers of Seymour in this capacity. If I can ever be of assistance, please feel free to contact me via email or by phone at 812/522-2596. My office is located at Emerson Elementary, where I also serve as assistant principal.
I thank you for visiting this page and look forward to working with you in the future.
