A Dynamic Duo: Student and Teacher Team Up for Success

In December 2015 Mandy Gilbart, a Wilson Level I Certified educator, reached out to Wilson to share a Carroll County Times article about her remarkable Wilson Reading System® student, Coley.

Mrs. Gilbart first met Coley in the weeks before the 2014-2015 school year started. Coley was beginning 8th grade as a new student at Carroll Lutheran School. That August day, Mrs. Gilbart realized she was reading more than four years below grade level, and Coley decided that if anyone could teach her how to read, it would be Mrs. Gilbart.

Mrs. Gilbart knew from Coley’s assessment data and past reading experiences that WRS would be a perfect fit. She worked with Coley one-on-one, three hours per week, and she experienced success almost immediately. Her confidence increased dramatically, and one night her mom sent Mrs. Gilbart a picture of Coley reading a book for pleasure for the first time ever.
