For the past nine years I have had the pleasure of working alongside Cindy Miner Kapelke in her role as a consulting Educational Therapist. She is a highly trained, warm-hearted fount of knowledge, wisdom and expertise. Cindy sees the uniqueness of every learner; recognizing their challenges as well as their gifts and strengths equally. It is her positive, collaborative, creative, and engaging nature- along with the ability to conceptualize effective appropriate interventions to support each student’s journey toward their optimal academic success- that have made her indispensable to our team. Cindy’s approach to addressing a range of learning challenges is always informed by a keen understanding of the relationship between learning and the social and emotional landscape of the learner. Any parent with a child working with Cindy should pat themselves on the back, as they are doing their child a tremendous service.
