RISING READERS: A Special Education Story

Teacher inspires hundreds with learning disabilities to know "they can do hard things."


After struggling with her own reading disability as a child, Mrs. Barton was inspired to become a special education teacher. At Ephraim Middle School she has helped hundreds of students rise to the occasion and overcome reading and learning challenges. Without the encouragement and help of teachers like Mrs. Barton, there are thousands of kids who would not graduate from high school each year.
