Wanda’s greatest handicap in school had been spelling. She learned to read with Dick and Jane, but even as a high school English teacher, she did not have a clue as to the sounds letters represented. After witnessing epidemic failure with reading and writing on the high school level, she started searching for the root problems so that someday when she had children of her own, she could assure their success in these vital skills. She discovered phonics but stumbled over unreliable rules and mammoth lists of exceptions. When her firstborn son was young, God provided the unexpected opportunity for her to study under experts like Romalda Spalding. She discovered a consistent, scientific way to teach language skills and watched her firstborn son flourish under her instruction. Although Wanda’s personal goal had simply been to train her own children, other local homeschool moms started seeking her help.

Aware of her own limitations and inadequacies, she never dreamed that one day she would write a curriculum inspired by Mrs. Spalding’s book, The Writing Road to Reading, and train educators in phonics across the United States and even internationally. Early in her Christian life Wanda gave up her profession as a classroom teacher in order to serve the Lord Jesus at home. She loved teaching but found that it consumed her energy and conflicted with her desire to be a help meet to her husband. God, in His providence, redirected her in a way that harmonized her teaching gifts with her family priorities. He gave back what she had surrendered to Him. Conducting occasional weekend classes to train home and classroom educators became a way that she could fulfill her life verse and encourage women “to love their children.”
