As Headmaster of The Bodine School, Murphy is responsible for leading the independent school in Germantown, TN, that serves roughly 95 students and its development office, which annually raises roughly $180,000 for financial aid students in grades 1-6 who have been diagnosed with dyslexia or similar difficulties with reading. Bodine’s program is designed to focus on early intervention, and class sizes are maintained at 10 or fewer students. Students attend Bodine School because they display an unexpected difficulty learning to read, write, and spell. To remediate their unique struggles, Bodine offers students an individualized, multi-sensory, research-based approach to instruction known as Orton-Gillingham. He also is responsible for overseeing the Erika Center, the outreach arm of Bodine. The idea is to be a resource in public schools for teachers and children who are dyslexic or whose brains mimic many of the symptoms of dyslexia due to the stress of growing up in poverty. Congratulations on a job well done.
