LETRS Success Story

Peshastin-Dryden Elementary, Leavenworth, Washington

Since 2003, every Peshastin-Dryden teacher has been trained in LETRS® (Language Essentials for Teachers of Reading and Spelling), which has greatly enhanced their ability to understand the process of learning to read. Students in grades K–2 at Peshastin-Dryden Elementary have seen more growth in literacy over the past two years than any students have in the history of the Cascade School District.

"My initial reaction to it was, 'Why didn't I learn this in college?’"
