"Mrs. Miltenberger truly understands that every child learns differently. She has taken the time to get to know each of my three girls individually to develop a plan to help with their struggles and achieve their own learning goals. She constantly evaluates their progress and adjusts the students reading strategies accordingly. Mrs. Miltenberger has been an amazing asset to our family." ~ Corrie Hagens, parent
"Words don’t express how much Janet has helped our family. Two of my children had reading difficulties. While Sami’s issues were resolved before 2nd grade, my little guy (Lincoln now 12) was different. We weren’t sure why some things were easy, and the easy stuff seemed really difficult. Let me explain, she worked vigorously with Lincoln even tutoring him outside of school. Then, she suggested he see an eye doctor. Well, the diagnosis was a breath of fresh air. He was diagnosed with a Binocular Vision Disorder (otherwise known as a form of dyslexia). Although having a diagnosis is tough, we had a direction to go! Janet continues to help guide us through what we call struggles, but does it with such Grace. I’ve seen her in action at school (I worked in the same building with her for 6 yrs). She cares so deeply for all kids to be successful learners! We are blessed to have her in our small corner of the world". ~Patti Spitzer, parent
"Not only did Mrs. Miltenberger help to get my son to where he needed to be in his reading, but she also taught me better ways on how to work with him at home. She worked with my son’s learning style to get him interested, and he enjoyed working with her. I was kept in the loop, and she thoroughly and promptly answered my questions. It was wonderful to work with her!"

"Helping children become good readers is the primary focus for Janet in her role as reading specialist; but she also dedicates herself to building relationships with children and families. Janet provides high quality instruction driven by years of experience and work with primary students. Children are excited to work with Mrs. Miltenberger! Her students are motivated and inspired to practice their reading and achieve reading goals because of Janet's warm and compassionate approach to instruction. As a classroom teacher, I have seen firsthand, the love Janet's students feel and display for her daily in the elementary school. She builds confidence and growth in reading by designing instruction that is unique to each child. Janet is instrumental in helping pave the way for children on the road to reading success!" ~Susan Bryan, Kindergarten teacher
"My oldest son worked with Mrs. Miltenberger for 4 years and it was amazing because when he entered into 5th grade everything he learned began to click.
