This past week I visited Charles Armstrong School in Belton, California. I could tell it was a special place as soon as I pulled up. The energy was captivating! By creating an environment that is supportive of students with dyslexia, they have created a home away from home feeling. When you have dyslexia, going to school can be so hard, but I could tell that I would have enjoyed going to school there.
Presenting to the students, teachers, and staff really gives me a sense of purpose. It reinforces the strong connection I already have to the dyslexic community, which is one of the reasons I wanted to support the International Dyslexia Association by sharing my story in Running the Distance.
I would love to hear from people on what you think makes a school feel like home?
