Katie Garner, M.Ed. (author of best-selling book, Secret Stories® Cracking the Reading Code with the Brain in Mind) is an internationally known keynote speaker, author and literacy consultant with thirty years of experience working in early grade classrooms across the country, and a passion for infusing neuroscience into literacy and learning! Her “backdoor-to-the-brain” approach to fast-tracking phonics skills for reading (via social-emotional learning systems) shifts the paradigms associated with traditional early literacy instruction. Katie is a regularly featured and keynote speaker at education conferences across the United States and abroad. Her fast-paced, dynamic presentations spotlight “brain-changing” strategies for boosting existing reading curriculum and phonics instruction with the latest neural research showing how our brains learn best. Katie’s practical and proven methods for bringing neuroscience into the forefront of literacy and learning are rooted in the science of reading, and have been the subject of numerous professional journal articles, and have been shared in both lecture and panel discussions at Harvard University and MIT.
