  • I wish I could go back and apologize to the struggling readers I taught in the first 12 years of my teaching career!  Of course, I was always doing my best, but now I’m so much more knowledgeable and am actually equipped with effective ways to help!

  • I never knew that I didn’t know how to teach reading. I am amazed. I cannot put into words how much this has helped me as an educator and as a person.
