With a background in Speech Pathology and Audiology, I was teaching in a special needs classroom and was frustrated with my students’ inability to learn to read using the whole language approach my school district was promoting. I discovered Wanda Sanseri’s materials and started implementing them immediately. All of my students experienced tremendous strides in their reading and spelling abilities that year, some even leaving the self-contained classroom because of their growing skills. Since 1991, I have used SWR for tutoring both children and adults, in the homeschool setting with my own children, and to train adult teachers. In 2000 I developed the Cursive First program to coordinate with SWR. Many educators have had great success using the Cursive First methods and tools. Between 2012-2016, I enjoyed being back in the classroom again, this time being able to add cursive writing to the mix. The amazing results were only confirmed once again the brilliance of these methods.
My passion is all about coming along side you, the educator, and helping you to be successful and to see the results I’ve experienced myself. My goals are to provide you with information, encouragement, the materials you need to use SWR and/or Cursive First, and the training that will help you effectively educate your own students with these amazing programs.
Be encouraged! Get equipped. Let’s get started.
