Dulcie Crowther

Learning Support Specialist

Ms. Crowther has been a resident of St. Croix for 21 years. She moved here soon after receiving her master’s degree in speech-language pathology from Western Michigan University. Prior to that, she received a bachelor’s degree in speech-language pathology and audiology with an N-12 teaching certificate from The State University of New York at Geneseo. During her time here on St. Croix, she has used her speech therapy skills to treat clients of all ages in a variety of settings. Her work early on qualified her for the Certificate of Clinical Competence from the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) which she continues to maintain. While working in the public education system in St. Croix, Ms. Crowther completed requirements to obtain teaching certification in the Virgin Islands.

Ms. Crowther joined the AZ team in January of 2013 as the Learning Support Specialist. She uses her background in speech-language pathology to help students with reading comprehension, written expression, reading fluency, and mathematics as well as making learning accessible for students needing extra support in all areas of education. To grow in her role as a learning support specialist, she completed 60 hours of training in a modified Orton-Gillingham approach to reading through the Institute of Multi-Sensory Education. Her recent focus of growth has been in the area of structured word inquiry which reveals that the English language is a highly ordered system rather than a bunch of rules with too many exceptions. Please feel free to contact Ms. Crowther with any question you may have about her services.
