The Gift of Being a Dyslexic Teacher

  • The opportunity to act as a role model for students struggling with confidence, emphasising the increased capacity for imagination, visual learning, and creativity that comes with dyslexic brains.
  • The chance to show children that some of history’s greatest artists, leaders, and inventors were dyslexic (this helps relieve some of the pressure and shame that students feel).
  • The ability to prove that, like me, you can have dyslexia and still be a prolific reader and writer.”
