My Story

Hello!  My name is Christy Ray.  I am a licensed Intervention Specialist, certified Orton Gillingham specialist and have my masters in Special education.  I was in the classroom for 13 years before deciding to take some time away to spend with my family.  I have taught students with multiple disabilities, Autism, behavioral issues, learning disabilities, dyslexia and more!  Most recently I have been tutoring students preschool through 5th grade in phonemic awareness and reading using the Orton Gillingham method.  I love making connections with students and helping them to believe in themselves.  


I am also a mom to 3 kids, ages 6-9.  One of my children has struggled with emotional/behavioral issues, as well as ADHD.  I have learned so much from being his mom and it has made me an even better teacher.


Fun fact about myself:  I am a former college cheerleader.  I love to use my positive attitude and upbeat personality to cheer on my students and make learning fun!


Coming soon!
