Robyn Dalby-Stockwell honoured for 57 years teaching deprived children.
Online PR News – 10-June-2016 – Ely, Cambridgeshire, UK – Robyn Dalby-Stockwell was a pioneer teacher of synthetic phonics at a time when the method was considered unfashionable and irrelevant. She was to see standards slip as a result of using inferior teaching methods and more and more children becoming unable to read. Determined to rescue those abandoned by their teachers and the education authorities she carried on teaching synthetic phonics using her own system with remarkable success. She accepted any child of any background for whatever fees the parents could afford and in due course Robyn was vindicated by synthetic phonics returning to schools and reading standards beginning to improve.
Now having taught for 57 years this charismatic teacher is nearing her 80th birthday and determined to continue helping her children attain the gift of literacy for as long as she is able. Robyn's Queen's Birthday honour of an MBE is richly deserved.
Robyn says: "I dedicate my honour to all my kids who have worked so hard to fulfil their potential."
