Dyslexia Teacher



 Welcome to the 2019/2020 school year! My name is Leah Carrell and I am the Dyslexia Designee for Austin Elementary. This is my 18th year in the classroom, and I look forward to exploring the possibilities and strengths unique to your child. Please know I look forward to close home/school teamwork for your child's educational benefit!

Please have your child read at least 10-15 min every evening, Monday-Thursday. Any reading material you deem appropriate is acceptable. There are also numerous free learning sites accessible at home:,,,, to name only a few. I have also set up each of my students at for access to practice in all subjects. Feel free to contact me anytime by phone or email. You may leave a message for me at the front office and I will return your call as soon as possible.

Thanks in advance for working with me to assure a productive, growth-infused school year, for your child.
