Because of her work with children and teens who don’t learn basic disciplines like writing and math easily, Kathy is perfectly equipped to show us and teach us how to interact with students in ways that lift the clouds of doubt and despair. Her insights about how to encourage all students are relevant and her ideas are realistic.
