Intervention Specialist

Mrs. Felty graduated from Wake Forest University with a B.A. in Elementary Education. She is passionate about literacy, particularly the Orton-Gillingham approach for reading instruction and remediation. She is also a handwriting specialist, certified through the Learning Without Tears ™  program.

Mrs. Felty began her career as a Kindergarten teacher in Charlotte, North Carolina. Following this, she spent nearly 10 years working as a Communications Project Manager and Change Manager in the banking industry. She then stayed home to focus on her raising her twin boys, who required intensive developmental support due to their premature birth. This experience truly inspired her passion for helping students with learning differences. During this time at home with her children, Mrs. Felty was an active volunteer in schools and the local community, running a non-profit organization for mothers of multiple birth children and serving on a Family Advisory Council for the Levine Children’s Hospital where her children were born.

Upon her arrival in Atlanta in 2011, she founded a handwriting tutoring company supporting elementary aged students. Mrs. Felty has been an active volunteer at Atlanta Classical Academy since its inception in 2014 and began her teaching career here in 2019.

Although born in New Jersey, Mrs. Felty now likes to consider herself a southerner, having lived in the south for over 30 years. She has two college-aged sons and enjoys reading, walking, and spending time at the beach with family.

The mission of Atlanta Classical Academy is to develop graduates in mind and character through a classical, content-rich curriculum that emphasizes the principles of virtuous living, traditional learning, and civic responsibility.
