Margaret (Stiles) Gisler, ’65, author and innovator
Margaret writes to us about her work helping parents and students successfully learn to read:
“Since graduation, I have written over 100 books. I write an education column Dear Teacher for King Feature Syndicate. I also have a website, dearteacher.com to help parents get their children successfully through school from pre-school through college.
Also I have just developed my second app to teach children to read. You can get my three apps from my website dearteacher.com and you will be taken directly to the Apple App Store.
One app Dear Teacher is a totally free app for parents and the second two apps Skinny Books help your children learn to read more than 200 rhyming words and 37 basic sight words. Skinny Books 2 will help them learn an additional 200 rhyming words and 18 new sight words. In addition they will have learned almost every consonant sound. They will have an excellent start in becoming both readers and spellers.”
Thank you, Margaret, for sharing your passion for teaching with us!
