Josie Porcella is an education specialist at the Center for Developing Minds. She has nine years of
experience working one-on-one and in small groups with students from elementary school through college
on reading remediation, writing skills, assistive technology, and the development of executive function
skills. By helping to recognize their inherent strengths, while providing support in their areas of
need and fostering their self-confidence, she believes passionately that every student can achieve success.
Prior to joining the Center for Developing Minds, Josie worked at Compass High School in San Mateo,
where she taught intensive reading remediation and study skills in a small group setting, provided
educational therapy for students, conducted professional development training in reading, writing,
and executive function skill development, and partnered with teachers to support differentiated instruction
in the classroom.
Josie holds a Masters degree in Special Education from San Francisco State University, a B.A. in
Psychology from the University of San Francisco, and she is certified at the Associate level through
the Association of Educational Therapists. She is trained in Lindamood-Bell and Orton Gillingham-based
reading programs, the Reading Apprenticeship literacy program, and various assistive technology software
programs for students with language-based learning differences. Josie is also fluent in Spanish and has
studied Spanish literature in Guadalajara, Mexico.
