Meet The Literacy Lady Team

"Teenagers do not have standardized minds, yet they must take standardized tests. It is the responsibility of educators to adapt traditional teaching approaches to meet the needs of the individual child."
- Carva King from DYSTINCT article, "More Than Just a Number"

Carva King is a 24-year veteran teacher with Mississippi AAA teaching certifications in Dyslexia Therapy, English, Reading, Library Media Science, Career Technical Special Populations, Special Education Mild-to-Moderate Disabilities, English as a Second Language, and School Administration. Carva earned both Bachelor's and Master's degrees in Secondary Education with an emphasis in English from Mississippi State University. In 2022, she completed an Educational Specialist (Ed.S.) degree in Reading from Arkansas State University, where she also earned Graduate Dyslexia Certification. She is a graduate of the Mississippi Alternate Route to Quality School Leadership and has completed training in Orton-Gillingham reading methodology through the Institute for Multi-Sensory Education.


Carva has spent the majority of her career teaching and coordinating services for populations of adolescent students who face potential challenges in their journeys to academic success. These populations include students with specific learning disabilities (including dyslexia), students with ADHD and other behavioral concerns, English language learners, pregnant teens/teen parents, students in high-poverty rural communities, students placed into the Multi-Tier Support System (MTSS), and students with Autism Spectrum Disorder who are able to participate in the general education curriculum. As an adolescent reading specialist, she is passionate about providing innovative, research-based instruction for older struggling readers. Carva is equally as passionate about helping high school students achieve their post-secondary goals. In fact, she asserts that she is on a mission to help students attend college without the burdensome debt of student loans. Her vision for The Literacy Lady is to offer highly-specialized services designed to meet the unique needs of adolescent learners.
