My name is Tomi Sue Imhoff. I have a wonderful husband named
Matt and am blessed with two amazing children, Jaiden who is 18
and Ashton who is 17. We have recently moved out of the city
and enjoy a quieter life between city and farm.
I have been teaching for 19 years and have a degree in Special
Education with certification areas in: Learning Disability, Mental
Retardation, Mild Moderate, Autism, Reading Specialist,
Elementary Reading and Writing, English as a Second Language
and Mid-Level English.
I crave knowledge and have spent years in search of a method to
help my students, who I assumed had dyslexia. In 2014 I obtained
my Masters in Education for Reading. Still not finding the
information I wanted I wrote my capstone titled Interventions for
the Elementary Student with Dyslexia. Even with all of this
knowledge I felt ill equipped to fully meet the needs of my
In 2020, after extensive research, I knew I needed to be trained in
the Orton-Gillingham method. It IS what I have been seeking for

breathed to life.
I don’t usually introduce myself this way but I will for you. My name is Allen Everett, M.Ed., ABD, CCJS, and Honorary Colonel in the Oklahoma National Guard. I have a Master’s in Education and I am “all but dissertation” for a Ph.D. in Organizational Psychology; additionally, I am a Certified Criminal Justice Specialist and I taught at Northwestern Oklahoma State University for (18) years.
You will understand why that information is important when I tell you that I couldn’t recite the alphabet until the 2nd grade and I couldn’t read with any level of comprehension until the 4th grade. I never made a “B” or an “A” on my report card until the 6th grade. It was truly life changing when I met a teacher who understood how to help me; without her I would probably not be able to read a newspaper or magazine. I want you to know that I know what it’s like to struggle with reading and writing and subsequently every other subject. And, I know what it’s like to finally have hope.
Now, for the important information about me, I have been married for (39) years and have (4) children and (5) grandchildren. I have worked with children all my professional life in counseling, schools, and church. I have written several, unpublished, children’s books, and won 1st place in a poetry contest. Finally, I am super excited about working with you. I finished the Orton-Gillingham training to give your child the skills and abilities to accomplish their dreams.
