I agreed to come on the Board of Directors of the Fundamental Learning Center, Inc., Wichita, KS in January 2014. I had very little knowledge of the work of the corporation but after learning of their mission, I agreed to a 3 year term on the Board. I was informed that I would need to serve on one committee. After three months, I found myself on four committees, Executive, Finance, Governance, and Facilities Development. I chair the Facilities Development Committee.

During this short period of time, I have found that Jeanine Phillips, Executive Director has an enormous passion to serve the 5-8 year old children that are dyslexic and have a severe problem of reading, writing, and spelling. That passion has been very addictive to her staff as they too are highly committed to serve these young people. The teaching staff also are committed to training teachers, from the public and private schools, to teach young children in their own classrooms.

The majority of the Board of Directors are Mothers or Fathers of dyslexic children. I bring a different prospective to the Board in that I was Vice President for Administration and Finance at Wichita State University for 45 years and Senior Vice President for another 5 years prior to my retirement. Given my 50 years as an administrator I have experienced various degrees of passion for individual performances and I would place the FLC staff at the top of the class for the passion that is shown for their respective assignments. Without reservation, I would request the highest rating possible for this organization.

I was trained as a reading therapist by the founder of Fundamental Learning Center. I used that training to work with language learning different students (mainly dyslexic) for 17 years. The thrill of seeing a non-reader become a reader by using the Orton-Gillingham based program that FLC offers is immeasurable. The founder and director of FLC is a truly dedicated and tireless advocate for children struggling to read, write and spell. Fundamental Learning Center is definitely an oasis in a desert of
misguided reading instruction techniques.

As a teacher I have experienced many training situations. I have often questioned the validity and necessity of those training experiences. This was NOT the case, however, at Fundamental Learning Center. I received knowledge and tools that I can use immediately in my classroom. It was one of the best educational experiences I have ever had! It will help me to be a better teacher; however, it will do so much more for my students!
