Mrs. Pamela Wilson
Welcome to Tradition's 2020-2021 school year! My name is Pamela Wilson, and I am honored to be your child's Dyslexia Therapist. I look forward to working with parents of new and returning! You, as a parent, are your child's first and forever teacher! My goal is to help your child develop a love and appreciation for literacy and all that it can offer!
I earned by Bachelor and Master degrees at Southwest Texas State University in San Marcos and have been teaching for 33 years, all in ECISD! I started my career at John Glenn Elementary teaching grades 3 and 4. After 5 years in the classroom, I became the dyslexia specialist and then Campus Curriculum Coordinator. I realized my heart was with teaching students how to read, spell, and write, so I returned to the dyslexia classroom and continued my training to become a Dyslexia Therapist at the Neuhaus Education Center outside of Houston. Through Neuhaus I became a Certified Academic Language Therapist (CALT) and maintain two additional credentials: Licensed Dyslexia Therapist (LDT) and Certified Dyslexia Therapist (CDT). I am continually learning, so I can provide the most effective training to my students. I have been married for 31 years and have a 29-year old son and a daughter getting ready to attend UNT. In my free time I enjoy exercising, reading, and traveling.
You are viewing this website because you, too, know that reading and writing are key to your child's academic success and future. The beginning of this school year will be like one we've never experienced before; however, one thing remains the same: I am committed to providing your child with the best instruction possible, whether your child is learning remotely or on campus. So please feel free to contact me. The most important things you can do for your child, especially during remote periods are to:
1. Have frequent conversations with your child about the school day. Encourage the use of complete sentences when speaking and answering questions.
2. Ensure that your child reads daily for at least 20 minutes to gain new vocabulary, concepts, and skills.
3. Listen to your child read, even if for only part of the session. Model fluent reading and have your child repeat your model.
4. To build concepts, vocabulary, and oral language, read to your child text that is interesting but too difficult for your child to read.
5. Encourage and praise hard work, persistence, and new learning.
Current research shows that reading homework is only beneficial to elementary children if they read with a parent. Conversations about the schoolday and how it relates to their future demonstrates that you value the importance of education.

Here's to a terrific school year! Thank you for visiting!
