Caroline McClelland, M.S.
“I want my students to know that they are capable of doing anything they want. A learning disability does not define who they are or their capability of doing something.”
Role at Wright Psychology and Learning Center:
Dyslexia Therapy Instructor using both the Barton Reading & Spelling System and “Original” Orton-Gillingham method
Favorite part of the job:
I love helping children grow in a way that not only helps them develop as a student, but in every aspect of life.
I have a Bachelor’s in Elementary Education from Mississippi College and a Master’s Degree from Mississippi College’s Orton-Gillingham Dyslexia Therapy Graduate Program.
Why I do what I do:
I want my students to know that they are capable of doing anything they want. A learning disability does not define who they are or their capability of doing something. I love showing kids they are as capable as anyone else in the classroom, maybe even more so.
Favorite quote or mantra related to this line of work:
My philosophy on teaching is just helping students be the best that they can be. As a teacher, I’d like to see us get rid of the labels and the stigma that comes with them.
Family & free time:
I am the oldest of five children and mainly grew up in Owensboro, KY. I like to stay active and I spend my free time running. Sports have always been a huge part of my life. I’m also involved in my church and my faith is extremely important to me.
