Meet Theresa

The Reading Coach for Parents

I entered graduate school as an optimistic 21 year old excited to make a difference in children's lives.

Little did I know that the reading philosophy being taught at my university produces dismal results. Unfortunately, I am the rule, not the exception. Generations of teachers like me were misguided, but today we see hope. 

As an undergraduate, my favorite elective was Developmental Speech and Language which relied on brain research to provide insight into how we learn. For thirty years I wondered why teachers, administrators or curriculum publishers never referenced brain research when discussing literacy. 

I did everything I could think of to help my students and my own children but there was no clear path, no specific instructions.

My instincts told me that what I had been taught in my credentialing program wasn't working but what was the alternative.

Finally, eight years ago, three decades into my career and two decades into parenting, I began working as a consultant for a reading program that made sense. It was crafted around research and evidence. It provided a certain path to success.

Most parents were taught to read using a failed system. I believe you deserve the truth about reading presented in a manner that makes sense to parents. I am dedicated to providing strategies so families can live their lives with Less Stress, More Success!

Charlie made me do it...

It was time to make a change and I wasn't sure what to do. After leaving the classroom, I spent 30 years building a career in curriculum publishing and Ed-Tech. For 23 of those years, I balanced career and raising a family. I needed to do something different but had no idea what was next.

Enter the best hair stylist ever. She keeps me in blonde highlights and gives me a cute cut I can manage. Her son, Charlie, had started Kindergarten and she kept asking me questions about how she could help her son. She was trying to duplicate how she learned to read and it wasn't working. She was frustrated and exhausted.

As the advice came flowing out of my mouth I heard myself say, "I need to help the parents." She breathed a sigh of relief and said, "Yes, please help us." 

I left the salon on a mission to reduce the stress parents feel about helping their children read!
