Amy has 10 years of experience in working with children and teens. Prior to joining the C&FD team, she taught in Charlotte Mecklenburg Schools and provided Orton-Gillingham based instruction in phonics, guided reading, and comprehension strategies to struggling readers. She was selected as a Fellow of the U.S. Department of State and relocated to South Africa, where she trained local teachers in vocabulary, guided reading, and reading comprehension strategies.  Her work continued with the Department of State, writing articles for the academic journal English Teaching Forum and developing training materials for educators.
