About Morgan Beidleman

A Lexercise Clinical Educator and a former marketing executive, Morgan joined Teach For America in 2007 with the desire to help struggling readers — a personal passion: "I struggled with reading as a child and without dedicated teachers and tutors, I never would have become the avid reader I am today. I understand, firsthand, how important extra time and support is when learning to read," she says. In 2008, after researching the track record of the Orton-Gillingham approach, Morgan convinced her principal to train teachers in the method. She has been using it ever since — including at Lexercise, which is based on the Orton-Gillingham approach — and is a firm believer in its effectiveness.
