Innovative educators honored

Eleven educators from around the country are attending the International Dyslexia Association’s (IDA) 61st Annual Conference in Phoenix this week as recipients of the 2010 Robert G. and Eleanor T. Hall Memorial Scholarships, sponsored by School Specialty Literacy and Intervention. These scholarships reward exemplary educators from around the country for the innovative instructional strategies they use to help their dyslexic students achieve at the highest levels.

All successful scholarship applicants submitted essays describing where and how they encounter dyslexia in their classrooms, their experiences and knowledge about teaching students with dyslexia and other learning disabilities, and how they will be able to apply the knowledge they gain from attending the IDA conference.
