    Season 3, episode 9
    Meet the founders of WY Lit, Heather Fleming and Kari Roden, who are passionate about helping kids with dyslexia. Heather says, “What we advocate for at WY Lit are practices that are really best to solidify foundational reading skills for all children but particularly important for children who struggle with reading.” She went on to say, “The bulk of teachers are willing to learn more and we need those teachers to be brave enough to say, 'I didn't learn this, and I would like to know more.' We need them to be vocal about that within their districts. We've had some fantastic administrators who have been very supportive of us. So, administrators can also be the voice of change." Heather and Kari were instrumental in the passing of Wyoming House Bill 297 related to K-3 reading screening and intervention. They have been contracted by the Wyoming Department of Education on several literacy projects and are excited to continue partnering with literacy stakeholders in Wyoming.

    Kari Roden says, Empowering parents is the biggest thing, with this knowledge. What to say and what to ask for and to really demand because that's what it has come down to. You need to demand what these kids need. - Kari Roden

Authenticity, grace, and curiosity

It is so rare that women go out of their way to lift other women up. The incredible human beings who host this podcast embody this lost art. I have been inspired by the stories of those they interview. My business partner and I were honored to be guests of Amie, Brandi and Jeremy. The team empowered us to share our story by creating an environment in which we could be our authentic selves.

Refreshing, entertaining, and quality.

Those are just a few of the superlatives I would use to describe this podcast. Awesome to see two strong women interview and relate to other strong women in the region. Highly recommend!
