What our teachers are saying...

Eryn was a fantastic lead with delivering the SpellRead program and was available to answer any questions along the way. We had fun learning and laughing together, learning that we all have different ways of expressing ourselves through language.

Eryn's guidance, I gained a profound understanding of Spell Read's methodology and techniques, equipping me with the knowledge and skills necessary to effectively deliver the program. Eryn's approachability and willingness to address any questions or concerns made the learning process a rewarding experience. I am genuinely excited about the prospect of implementing Spell Read in my teaching practice and witnessing the transformative impact it will have on my students.

Halifax Learning has been very proactive in incorporating different mediums of support and feedback allowing our staff flexibility in accessing what they need for our students. As a result of their science-backed reading program, collaborative teamwork and flexibility in their support, our students have seen great success within reading, often a key driver for families when applying to our school.

This training supports many of the ways I currently teach reading and writing. It also drew attention to some areas where I can improve the way I support my students as they progress as readers and writers.

The design of the lessons presents a simple way to address three important literacy skills within each lesson (linguistic foundations, reading, and writing). I know I can incorporate this structure into more than just SpellRead lessons, but also in my general literacy teaching. Additionally, the activities that were presented will be valuable additions to my toolbox and I can envision using them to practice various literacy skills with all types of students."

I would recommend this training. The instructors are very knowledgeable and tailor the training to meet the trainees' level of understanding of the science of reading.

Taking the SpellRead training has taught me a different approach to teaching reading. The hands-on and tactile methods used with students not only keep them engaged, but also help them progress through the lessons without getting bored. In the two weeks that I have started the program with my students, I have seen increased engagement and smiles on their faces. They are also enjoying the sessions, which makes my job much easier!

[Halifax Learning's] SpellRead is not only a remedial reading program for students, but also a comprehensive training program on the science of reading that all teachers should receive training on in order to effectively teach reading.

I was pleasantly surprised by the level of thoroughness and thoughtfulness that has gone into this training. The facilitators were readily available after the training to answer questions and provide support when needed. I highly recommend training with Halifax Learning.
