The Schenck School has always been committed to teacher training and requires its in-house teachers to take a year-long training class in the Orton-Gillingham Approach. The teacher-training program was inaugurated many years ago by former School Director, Marge Tillman, to formally teach this highly successful approach.
In the fall of 2001, the School began to provide that same level of training to tutors and teachers outside of The Schenck School. Educators in the metro Atlanta area and nationally have participated in this exceptional program.
The School strongly encourages those in the Teacher Training I class to begin tutoring students upon completion of the class. It is only through working one-on-one with students that the material the teachers have been exposed to is truly learned. Observations and mentoring are a critical component of the program. The Schenck School offers additional Teacher Training courses for an expansion of skills.
