My name is Emily Henderson and I am so thrilled to be at Fort Sam Houston Elementary! As a Dyslexia Teacher and Reading Specialist, I will collaborate with teachers, parents and students to provide additional literacy instruction. Our goal is to ensure all young learners have a strong foundation by delivering additional support when needed. I hope to help foster a love of reading and lifelong discovery!
Over my nine years in education, I have taught Pre-K, Kindergarten and 1st Grade. I have also worked as an interventionist for both math and reading. I received my Bachelors in Early Childhood Education from The University of Texas at Austin. I received my Masters in Education from the University of Houston with a focus on Language Arts, Literature and Reading. Additionally, I am a certified Reading Specialist.
I enjoy eating yummy food, being active and getting cozy with a book. I look forward to a fabulous year!
