JoEllen was one of the best reading teachers I have known.  I was constantly amazed at her level of enthusiasm and spunk she had as well as her depth of knowledge.  JoEllen thought very deeply about reading difficulty children had.  She pushed me to think beyond the symptom of their reading behavior to find real solutions for each child.  She was never satisfied to get a child to pass a skill, she wanted them to own that skill…and they did.  

JoEllen was also an amazing staff member to be around.  Her fun loving personality showed through from the moment she walked into our building until the day she retired.

It has been an honor to work alongside JoEllen Dambro.
