Welcome to Dyslexia Class!
Hello! I my name is Megan Spencer and I am the Dyslexia Specialist at Burnet Middle School.
I am excited to be a part of Burnet Middle School and Bulldog Nation! I have been a dyslexia teacher for the past 4 years at a public charter school where I worked with students in PreK through 12th grade. I received my Bachelors degree from Western Governors University and am currently working towards my Masters degree at Grand Canyon University. I began teaching 9 years ago in Early Childhood Education and decided to follow my daughter to big school. I found my heart place helping students who struggle, becoming a Dyslexia teacher and Special Programs Coordinator.
My family and I moved to Liberty Hill in 2020. We love the country and small towns of the Texas Hill Country, and we love the people! We have a blended family with 4 children ages 31, 30, 25, and 13. We are blessed to have one handsome grandson so far who will be turning 8 this year.
My family and my faith are my favorite things to spend my time with, and my chickens! I love sports and on the weekends in the fall I am all about the college football. I love my Longhorns, but will root for all the Texas teams. If I am not watching football you will probably find me at the Texas Stars games.
Most of all, I love to teach! My happy place is with my students and helping them to grow. Dyslexia is not a hinderance, it is not a disease. It is a different way of learning! Helping my students to overcome the obstacles and use their gifts to continue to grow is my goal. I look forward to walking with and supporting my students at Burnet Middle School!
This year we will be working in the Reading By Design program. I have taught this program for the past 3 years and am excited to be bringing it to BMS. As we go through the year I will post resources for both parents and students. Currently you will find a link to the Dyslexia Handbook that was updated this past year and an informational booklet on Reading By Design. Please know that I am always available if you have any questions or concerns, my conference period is the last period of the day.
