Meet Your Fellow
Deb Morris, M.Ed., F/AOGPE
Deb Morris is an Accredited Training Fellow of The Academy of Orton-Gillingham Practitioners and Educators (AOGPE). She has over 16 years' experience as an educator and a decade as a Fellow of the AOGPE. She is a certified reading specialist with an under-graduate degree in English and a Masters in Literacy Education.
Deb is equally adept at engaging elementary students as she is presenting foundational skills, such as phonics, in a manner that respects the intellect of middle and high school students. She lives for the lightbulb moment when reading finally makes sense to students for whom it has always been a mystery.
Her online lessons provide the one-on-one, multi-sensory, structured-language instruction that is the hallmark of Orton-Gillingham. Finding qualified O-G practitioners can be challenging, and disruptions in the continuity of student instruction due to a change in O-G tutors can be detrimental to growth. With Orton-Gillingham Nation's flexible online model, this is no longer a concern.
