Author - Speaker - Consultant
Katie Garner, M.Ed. (author of Secret Stories® Cracking the Reading Code with the Brain in Mind) is an internationally known education keynote speaker, author and literacy consultant with thirty years of experience working in classrooms across the world and a passion for infusing neuroscience into literacy and learning. Katie's “backdoor to the brain” approach to fast-tracking phonics skills for reading and writing (via the social and emotional learning systems) shifts the paradigms associated with traditional literacy instruction. Her fast-paced, dynamic presentations spotlight "brain-changing" strategies for boosting existing reading/ phonics curriculum by aligning science of reading-based practice with the brain’s systems for learning. Katie's practical and proven methods for bringing neuroscience into the forefront of literacy and learning have been shared in both lecture and panel discussions at Harvard University and MIT, and have been the subject of numerous professional journal articles and publications.
