My name is Tiffany Peltier.
I study teacher training in reading instruction, intervention, and reading disabilities.
I have over 12 years of experience in the education field, serving as an elementary teacher in three different states, acting as an literacy coach for elementary teachers in three high-needs schools, and teaching undergraduate coursework within special education, learning sciences, and reading at Texas A&M and the University of Oklahoma.
I also provide professional learning for various schools and districts around early reading instruction and learning disabilities, have developed and facilitated Dyslexia Awareness training for a state department of education, and have contracted as a National LETRS trainer.
With expertise in reading instruction and assessment, special education, learning science, teacher training, dyslexia, and other learning disabilities, I have publications in a wide range of research and practitioner journals.
I strive to continually disseminate research findings through this blog and other social media platforms, drawing from a vast body of expertise and research to identify common misconceptions and promote high-impact practices to accelerate teacher, administrator, and student learning.
I know it is difficult for teachers and other stakeholder to access research journals. Because of this, I am making papers I have published in the past available here, if allowed by the journal. If you would like access to one I have authored you do not see listed here, please use the contact me form and I will get it to you.
The following are open access versions of articles I have authored that are currently in print.
