About Wendy Darasz

I am a literacy specialist and a certified dyslexia practitioner  who is passionate about the teaching of reading.  After earning my Masters in Education from the University of Hartford I was blessed to enter my chosen profession.   I spent many years instructing in a primary classroom where my zest for teaching reading began and flourished.  

After years of independent study on the craft and science of teaching reading, I attained my certification as a Literacy Specialist (K-12) from Albertus Magnus College in New Haven,

The fire to learn more about the Science of Reading inspired me to continue my education.  In February of 2021, after a year of intense study and practicum work with Wilson Academy, I achieved my goal of becoming a Certified Dyslexia Practitioner.

Another of my greatest delights, is working alongside teachers and sharing insights and expertise with one another to provide the most effective instruction for students.  That’s how my partner and I began designing and writing curriculum materials that align with the Science of Reading. 

This website is one more way to build a community of educators who believe that every child deserves reading success.

When I’m not reading, teaching, or writing about reading I am usually engaged in one of my other delights in the northwest hills of Connecticut: spending time with my husband, spoiling one or both of my dogs, hiking, or gardening.

Both Jen and I welcome you to this community.  Thanks for joining us!
