Local businesses sponsor teachers to attend dyslexia conference

Letter of thanks
By Jessica Sirdoreus | Nov 30, 2017

To the editor:

Thank you for last week’s article about local teachers attending Decoding Dyslexia’s fall conference.

I have been a dyslexia advocate for many years, and your article was “good press” for our cause!

Fairfield Community School District teachers were able to attend this conference because of local business sponsorship, and I’d like to thank those sponsors publically. This year’s sponsors were: Libertyville Saving’s Bank (second year sponsoring); Agri-Industrial Plastics (second year sponsoring); MidWestOne Bank (second year sponsoring); Miller Realty; First National Bank; Top Dog; and Pilot Grove Savings Bank.

I sincerely appreciate their support, as do other parents of dyslexic students and the teachers who were able to attend the conference because of their generosity.

If you work for a business who would like to sponsor a scholarship for the 2018 conference, please reach me at j-sirdoreus@hotmail.com.
