Welcome to Mrs. Light's Classroom webpage
Name: Amy Light
Grade/Subject: Dyslexia Therapy
I grew up in Wylie and attended Wylie High School and played sports as much as I could. I graduated from Ouachita Baptist University in Arkadelphia, Arkansas, where I played volleyball. I grew up in Wylie and married my high school sweetheart, Jason Light. We have two children, Brady, 14, and Macey, 10. My husband is also a teacher and a coach. My family loves sports, hanging out at the lake and spending time with our family and friends.
This is my 16th year in education. I started out as a teacher and coach and when we started a family, I retired from coaching. I have spent the majority of my teaching career in elementary school, where I have taught Special Education, 2nd, 3rd and 4th grade. Elementary school has my heart. This will be my first year as a Dyslexia Therapist, which is near and dear to me because our daughter is also dyslexic. I think I have a unique perspective because I am both a teacher of dyslexia therapy and also a parent of a dyslexic child. I am so excited to have the opportunity to help children succeed in reading!
I am so grateful to be in Allen ISD and serve both Story and Chandler Elementary.
