HARTA donates to Dyslexia Program




Humble Area Retired Teachers Association (HARTA) presented a $100 donation to Dyslexia Coordinator Kelly Elias for the Humble ISD Dyslexia Program. Each year HARTA makes a donation to a reading program in the area. 


Kathy Joseph, Second Vice President of HARTA and retired Creekwood Middle School Assistant Principal presented the donation to Elias at the May HARTA meeting.


“We wanted to support the Dyslexia program because reading is fundamental to children’s education,” Joseph said. “We want all children to have the tools that need to be successful.”


The Humble ISD Dyslexia reading intervention program partners with families and community to develop each child intellectually, artistically, emotionally, physically, and socially so that all students are life-long learners, complex thinkers, responsible global citizens and effective communicators.


“My hope is to continuously promote our reading intervention program so parents and teachers can help with assessing dyslexia as early as possible,” Elias said. “The earlier we can intervene the better it is for our students’ academic success.”
