Drawing from my 13 years experience as a homeschooling mom of six and classroom experience at a Classical School (9 years teaching 1st grade and a year with 2nd grade), I am currently focused on training educators and tutoring students of all ages in many subject areas.

By the end of my first year in the classroom I could tell that the common curriculum had failed to give my students the tools they needed to be successful readers. I learned SWR the following summer (2007) and implemented it in the classroom that fall.

The contrasting results of SWR were incredible! The students’ reading and spelling skills were so dramatically higher, in fact, that my school had to revise the literature curriculum in following grades to accommodate the significantly stronger readers that SWR produced!

Over the years, I have seen SWR make good readers and spellers into great readers and spellers, and I have seen struggling students become confident readers and spellers. Now, as an Endorsed SWR Trainer, I have the privilege of training teachers to reproduce these results with their own students. I would love to come alongside you to enjoy the same results!
