“I inspire greatness for a better world by helping children with learning differences experience academic success. I synthesize student information and facilitate collaboration among family, teachers and outside specialists to develop supportive strategies for my students.”
Sally Scheetz, ET/P, believes people with learning differences can accomplish whatever they want in life once they understand how they learn. At La Jolla Country Day School, Ms. Scheetz’s role is to provide a supportive learning environment that encompasses the students’ individual needs and facilitates their academic, emotional and social growth.
Ms. Scheetz’s career began in Los Angeles as a special day classroom teacher. It was this job, and the dream of teaching her students one-on-one, that motivated her to become an educational therapist and to found Creative Learning Concepts in 1990.
Prior to joining the LJCDS community in August 2002, Ms. Scheetz had 18 years of experience providing educational interventions using a variety of process-based programs in public school settings and through her private practice.
Since becoming a member of the Learning Resource Center, Ms. Scheetz has added multiple specialized methodologies to her repertoire of programs designed to address dyslexia, ADHD, executive function, and delays in reading, comprehension, writing, spelling and math skills.
She reestablished the Peer Tutoring Program at the LRC in 2009, and during her five years as coordinator, Ms. Scheetz turned the program into an online, student-run, cross-divisional community service program.
As a long-standing professional member of the Association of Educational Therapists, Ms. Scheetz enjoys staying connected to and learning from like-minded professionals locally and throughout the country. However, nothing tops spending quality time with her three adult children, traveling, gardening, cooking and listening to live music.
