Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome to Wyatt! My name is Angela Krape and I’m the campus dyslexia therapist. I teach the Take Flight program for identified dyslexic students, as well as pre-dyslexia therapy using the general education program Rite Flight, Touchphonics, and Herman Reading programs. I work with our staff to identify students with dyslexia and support struggling students in Reading and Language Arts. This is my 24th year of teaching elementary, and it is still a joy to watch a child learn to read!
I grew up in the heart of the East Texas oil field. I graduated with my Associate’s Degree in Elementary Education from Kilgore Junior College. I graduated magna cum laude from the University of Texas in Tyler with my BS in Elementary Education and a specialization in English. I graduated summa cum laude from Texas Woman’s University with my M.Ed. in Reading Education and received the Reading and Bilingual Departmental award for my professional paper on using poetry with young children. I was awarded Wyatt’s teacher of the year in 2011 and received the PTA Lifetime Achievement Award in 2016. In 2019, I became a certified academic language therapist and certified dyslexia therapist.
I’m married to my college sweetheart, David, and we have two adult children. Our son, James, is a graduate of Texas Tech University in Lubbock, and our daughter, Caroline, is a junior at The University of Texas at Austin. And, we recently adopted Audri Kitty, our spoiled tabby cat!
