Christine Hill M.Ed., WDP
Christine has worked in education for over 25 years. She earned her BA in Elementary Education from ASU and her M.Ed. from Northern Arizona University. She is a certified K-8 teacher with endorsements in Reading and Early Childhood. Christine is also the proud mother of three children, one of whom is dyslexic. She is very aware as both a mom and a teacher, how difficult reading can be for some children. Through her daughter’s reading struggles and two-year journey receiving the appropriate help from trained reading therapists, Christine was inspired to learn as much as she could about dyslexia and the science of how the brain learns to read. She has since earned her Level One Wilson Reading System credentials and is a certified Dyslexia Practitioner.
Since her daughter was not diagnosed with dyslexia until the age of 14, Christine is a huge proponent of early reading intervention! As a parent, she was very relieved to know that a place like the AZDC existed to help all school aged children, even if they were already in high school!
Christine finds it rewarding to be able to provide research/evidence based instruction for her students at the AZDC. There is nothing like watching a child grow and blossom into a confident reader!
