Excited to dive into

the science of reading?

That’s our “thing”!

If you want a crash course in the science of reading, my 5-day challenge will show you the ropes and give you all of the must-have teaching tools you need to start implementing it right away.

My #1 goal is to make it easy and fun for you to put the science of reading into action.
