Meet Alyssa


Alyssa Althouse has over 20 years in education, an active teaching credential, extensive intervention practicum and professional development, Orton-Gillingham and Structured Literacy training, ECE Certifications, numerous teaching, leadership, and advocacy experiences and a passion for social entrepreneurship. Alyssa is fervid about the mission of LWA because of her own experiences in education. Even with a degree in Education and training as a Reading Specialist, she started teaching without fully utilizing the Science of Reading (SoR) in her elementary classroom. Knowing what she knows now, she would have served her students differently during those early years, staying true to her roots in early childhood education and the fundamentals of literacy development. Alyssa has seen the phenomenal impacts implementing structured literacy has had on her current students and is excited about helping parents and teachers access the knowledge they need to best serve their learners. She is constantly seeking out new courses and trainings to be able to provide the most current research to her practice. When we know better, we can do better!

Alyssa is a champion for children and knows what it feels like and looks like to struggle. Her goal - to improve literacy outcomes for children, even if it's just one child at a time.
