    About Me


    Welcome to our first year at the new Bob and Betty Nelson Elementary School!  I am the campus Dyslexia Therapist and have a passion for helping struggling readers overcome their difficulties.  Students with dyslexia and other reading impairments can achieve success given intensive, appropriate and thorough reading instruction.  It is my focus to provide such instruction as well as encouragement.  Success is an ongoing journey!   


    Professional Credentials


    I am a graduate of the Neuhaus Education Center's Dyslexia Specialist Preparation Program (2015) which has allowed me to become a Certified Academic Language Therapist by passing the certifying exam of the Academic Language Therapists Association (ALTA).   I hold both a Master of Education degree and a Bachelor of Business Administration in Accounting degree from the University of Houston.  In addition to my 1st through 8th grade teaching certificate I have certificates in Special Education and English as a Second Language.  


    Teaching Experience


    2019-2020 is my 14th year of working with students that have dyslexia, my 23rd year in Alvin I.S.D., and my 26th year as a teacher.  My other teaching assignments have included 2nd through 5th grades and special education.  




    My wife and I have lived in the City of Alvin for 24 years.  Both of our sons are graduates of Alvin High School, with one currently attending Alvin Community College and the other serving as a Petty Officer in the United States Coast Guard.
