About Sara Caulfield

It’s always helpful to know a little bit about the person you’ll be meeting, right? With over 30 years of experience as an educator working with students at the elementary and middle school levels in both private and public sectors, I have been able to refine the best strategies that help kids feel successful while progressing toward their learning goals! As a dyslexia interventionist, my primary focus is on students with learning differences, such as dyslexia and dysgraphia. I started my career teaching general education students and discovered my heart was set on helping the children who struggled the most.
