Finally! Discover the proven, research-based teaching strategies and tools that help 95% of children learn to read by the end of first grade.

Never worry that students are slipping through the cracks again.

The Reading Roadmap PD has already empowered teachers to help 121,770 students to read!

Never worry that students are slipping through the cracks again.

THIS is what sets The Reading Roadmap apart:

Not only will you learn all of the must-know research on how students’ brains learn to read…

You’ll ALSO get the tools and strategies you need to actually implement it in your classroom!

Which of these applies to you?

You worry that students are slipping through the cracks so you constantly search Google, TpT and Pinterest trying to piece together a way to help…

Your class has a huge range of reading levels. Trying to differentiate for everyone feels daunting. You can’t keep juggling it all…

You get paralyzed by self doubt and second guessing. You worry that you’re letting students down because you’re not doing it right…

Your teaching to-do list is always growing – there’s never enough time. You feel stretched thin, like you’re just trying to keep your head above water…

You want to dive into the science of reading but are nervous. You need someone to make it simple and show you the way…

No matter how hard you try, reading STILL isn’t clicking for some of your students. You feel stuck and need an easier way…

If you answered “yes” to even one of these things, then this PD was created for you.

Really, it’s beyond frustrating.

You are smart. You are dedicated.

But if you’re like most teachers I meet, your students STILL STRUGGLE with reading.

Did you know that 65% of 4th graders read BELOW grade level?? It’s true.

But it doesn’t have to be that way!

Most teachers think that to help their students learn reading faster, they just need to work harder.

But here’s the truth…

It’s not about working HARDER.

It’s about working SMARTER.

If you don’t use teaching tools and strategies that are based on what research has PROVEN works, your lessons are ineffective.

And ineffective lessons keep you AND your students stuck.

Your reading lessons kinda’ work… some of the time.

Students slip through the cracks, your admin gets frustrated, and you spend nights and weekends trying to piece together lesson plans that will fix it.

But there’s an easier way!

When you have research-based, classroom-tested teaching strategies and tools, EVERYTHING changes.

Your students get bigger, faster reading results and YOU gain unshakable teaching confidence.

You can swap those time-consuming Google searches for Netflix shows and down time with family and friends.

And that nagging worry that some students are slipping through the cracks?

It disappears forever. Because you know, without a doubt, that you’re using THE best teaching strategies.

The science of reading doesn’t have to be complicated…

In fact, my #1 goal is to make it easy for you to understand. And, most importantly, easy to implement in your classroom.

Using research-based teaching strategies and tools is actually *so much* simpler than you think.

All you need is an easy-to-follow blueprint.

And I’m going to lay it all out for you!


Just 4 weeks from now, you will:

  • Have a rock-solid understanding of what the research does (and does not!) tell us about how students learn to read. SPOILER ALERT: Instagram doesn’t always get it right
  • Use quick, 5-minute assessments to uncover what your students are really struggling with so you can fill hidden holes that are keeping them stuck
  • Implement simple, research-based teaching strategies and tools that help students learn to read 10 x faster
  • Learn when to teach specific phonics skills so you understand the step-by-step process from start to finish
  • Use done-for-you lesson plans and centers that save you valuable planning and prep time

Here’s the tried, tested and proven BLUEPRINT to getting bigger reading results…


Unlearn everything you think you know about teaching reading

I don’t even have to tell you that most of the things you’ve learned about teaching reading are probably wrong. Because if you already knew everything you needed to know, you wouldn’t be on this page right now. You’d already be living your best teaching life – too dialed in to best practices to even scout a training like this in the first place.

In the UNLEARN phase, you will let go of outdated teaching misconceptions that are keeping you and your students stuck.


Build a rock-solid foundation

You can’t be expected to implement research-based, science of reading teaching strategies without first setting up a strong foundation so in the BUILD phase, we’ll cut away the fluff and dive right into the good stuff – discovering how students learn to read on a scientific, research-based level so you can do more of what works and less of what doesn’t. 

And since the thing that makes The Reading Roadmap so effective is that you get the tools and strategies you need to immediately implement your learning in your classroom, you’ll walk away from this phase with everything you need to teach phonics, phonological awareness and phonemic awareness better than you ever thought possible.


Rewire kids’ brains to memorize words on auto pilot

Students’ brains are an incredible, powerful, and malleable tool that we can use to dial up the reading process. Once we’ve released the outdated teaching strategies that are getting in our way, it’s time to dive into the REWIRE phase where you will discover how to skyrocket students’ reading.

No more sleepless nights spent worrying that students might be slipping through the cracks! With these tools and strategies at your side, you’ll know without a shadow of a doubt that you are doing everything you can to help them succeed.


Elevate your differentiation

One of the biggest keys to teaching success is meeting each student’s needs and strengths. But in a classroom filled with a huge variety of learners, it can be hard to know where to start. In the ELEVATE phase, you’re going to learn the fail-proof, 4-step system that makes it easy to differentiate.

Not only will you be able to lesson plan faster than ever before, but the time you spend teaching will have bigger impact on students’ learning. You’ll get more results, in less time.


Master your teaching skills

In the MASTER phase, we’ll dive into ultra-juicy advanced teaching goodness. Now that you have a rock-solid understanding of the science of reading and have begun implementing powerful, research-based teaching techniques, you will learn master-level content that helps you become even more confident, empowered, and equipped for lifelong success. No more teacher overwhelm or self-doubt, ever. You know exactly how students learn to read and have a proven, easy-to-implement system you can count on.

And on top of ALL that core content, you’ll also get access to EPIC bonuses!..


($145 value)

Get access to 20 exclusive bundles of decodable literacy centers that effectively and PLAYFULLY teach students the phonics and phonological awareness skills they need to become fluent readers. The centers are so fun that students actually ASK to repeat them!


($120 value)

Reinforce critical phonics and phonological awareness skills with 54 playful, ready-to-assign Google and Seesaw games.


($200 value)

Have a question during The Reading Roadmap? You’ll get the chance to ask your questions LIVE and get clarity on anything that comes up for you during the course.


($100 value)

You deserve credit for all of the time and dedication you put into The Reading Roadmap so, when you complete the training, you’ll receive a clock hour certificate for 15 hours of PD.

Note: Since every state’s requirements are different, we encourage you to check with your district about eligibility.



Imagine how supported you’ll feel and how much faster you’ll skyrocket your results with hundreds of teachers who are all going through the process WITH you! Nothing beats a supportive community that has your back.

Plus a game-changing FAQ library, time-saving cheat sheets, dozens of done-for-you-lesson plans…


And LIFETIME ACCESS to all of it!

In just 4 weeks, you’ll have results like THIS…

“Teaching reading was always something I was concerned about – am I doing enough? Am I doing it right? How do I know where the kids are and where the next step is?… This has given me the confidence. That’s the best thing.”

Luanne – TK Teacher

“I felt like I was letting kids slip through the cracks… My planning has shifted entirely and I’m much more intentional about what literacy skill I’m helping kids work on – especially during small group time.”

– Julia, Kindergarten Teacher

“I never really felt like it was my programming or I was in command of it and now when I’m explaining it to my other teachers or paraprofessionals, I can say this is what we’re doing and I feel confident. I know exactly the program I’m delivering and it’s working. These kids are learning!”

Jessica – Kindergarten Teacher

“With the assessments, I felt like I was right on with EVERYBODY. Kids at the top of my class soared WELL beyond grade level!”

Laurie – Kindergarten Teacher

Here’s the truth:

You could spend $9,000 getting a reading specialist degree at a university, but the awesome news is that you don’t have to give up all your time and money to do that…

You can get the exact same results (PLUS get all of the assessments, literacy centers and teaching tools you need to get started right away!) for a whole lot less.

The Guarantee That Makes This a Complete No-Brainer:

When you join me in the 4-week professional development course and implement The Reading Roadmap system in your classroom, I guarantee that you’ll get bigger, faster reading results for EVERY student in class…


In other words, if you don’t know EXACTLY how to help 95% of your students have massive reading results after implementing this training, all you need to do is email our customer service manager, Kaylee, and I will happily refund your investment 100%.

Here’s why I’m not charging as much as I should for this PD:

Since starting The Reading Roadmap 6 years ago, I’ve helped thousands of teachers get wildly successful results and now it’s YOUR turn!

So many GOOD teachers struggle to implement the research-based teaching strategies that have been proven to help 95% of children learn to read by the end of first grade. Instead, they spin their wheels and their students don’t reach their fullest potential.

That’s why I want to get this system into as many hands as possible so I can help you get ALL of your students faster results.

Teaching with the science of reading is ESSENTIAL. And when you finally start doing it well, you’ll immediately unlock your students’ progress.

All of the training videos, assessments, literacy centers, and teaching tools inside The Reading Roadmap are worth more than $2,000.

But if you’d like my help and guidance taking your teaching to the next level, your investment is just a fraction of that.

… And remember, if you don’t get bigger, faster reading results after implementing the training, I’ll give you your money back. So what do you really have to lose?

Check out what more of our alums are saying!

“I don’t stress! I know EXACTLY what to do next. Teaching reading is very easy now.”

Cody – Kindergarten Teacher

“Now I plan better for each student and make sure I am meeting THEIR needs and seeing where THEY need to go next.”

Dana – Kindergarten Teacher

“I know what I’m doing now. And I know where to begin, where I’m going and how it’s going to look at the end. I can reach my goals!”

Laura – First Grade Teacher

“The children have so much – they’re like sponges – and so when you have the right tools, you just start seeing lights and these ah-ha moments happen all the time… ”

Bev – Pre-Kindergarten Teacher

Here’s how Malia can help you….

When I started teaching 19 years ago, I was like so many teachers I meet today…

I knew that some of my readers were slipping through the cracks but I didn’t know how to help them catch up.

So over the last two-ish decades, I earned my Master’s in Education from Stanford and became a National Board Certified Teacher. Then I designed, tweaked, and perfected an easy to use system that skyrockets students’ reading.

And now I’m excited to share all of my science of reading aligned teaching tools and lessons learned with YOU so that you can get right to the good stuff: helping EVERY reader thrive.

This is the training I wish I had 19 years ago.

Let’s turn those so-so teaching results into

MASSIVE success.

Class starts Sunday, October 9. Are you in?









How much time do I need for this?

During the four weeks of live training, you probably want to plan on about two hours each week. There’s bonus content waiting for you inside already and new modules will be released each Sunday. We also have two live Q&A sessions so you can get any support that you need.

You have lifetime access to this program so you don’t have to feel pressured to keep up though. There’s no falling behind. You have access to everything forever, and if you’re like our other grads, you’ll utilize the handouts and return to the training whenever you need it.

Most grads report an average time savings of 2.5 hours every week on planning by using what’s inside The Reading Roadmap. That’s 90 hours a year!

I’ve been teaching for quite a few years. Can this program really help me or is it just for beginners?

Laurie is one of our alums and she’s been teaching for nearly thirty years, completed her Masters + 75, and said this course far outweighed any of the reading courses she’d taken before. She became more confident because the quick assessments helped her identify students’ needs and strengths so she could fill hidden learning gaps. Using the tools and strategies she gained,100% of her students were reading when they entered first grade.

Laurie’s not the only seasoned teacher who’ve improved their success with The Reading Roadmap – you’ll find many wonderful teachers inside this community!

Will this program work with my school’s curriculum?

This program – this system – will work with any curriculum (Reading Recovery, Journeys, etc.). And if your curriculum is not science of reading aligned, you will gain the tools and strategies you need to significantly improve the effectiveness of your teaching.

Will this work if I’m teaching in a different country?

YES! We’ve had teachers from all over the world enroll and benefit from the program. It truly doesn’t matter where you’re teaching; the system works.

Does this really work for all students?

The assessments provided inside The Reading Roadmap will help you uncover exactly where your students are struggling. And then the decodable literacy centers, lesson plans, and other downloads will show you exactly how to teach your students at every level so that 100% of them are reading by the end of the year.

Is this professional development training that could be paid for by my school?

Yes! I even give you a pre-written letter to give to your principal. However, Julia, one of our alums, paid for it out of her own pocket (which she was hesitant to do), and said she would pay again and again and again because it was so good.

Is there a money-back guarantee?

Yes! I believe SO much in this program and the value you’re going to get that I will give 100% of your money back if you’re not satisfied with the content and the results you see in your students.

THIS is what makes The Reading Roadmap so special

Just imagine how you’ll feel when you…

  • Start every school year knowing that you will change all of your students’ lives – they’ll leave your classroom reading
  • Pinpoint exactly what students’ needs and strengths are using the simple, 5-minute assessments provided
  • Save 90 hours of prep time each year by using the print-and-play decodable literacy centers that help students learn and grow
  • Actually have fun and enjoy teaching literacy
  • Are confident 100% of your students will read – not one student will slip through the cracks
  • Watch the smiles on your students’ faces as they enter next year already reading

If you made it this far down the page, it’s probably because you’re considering enrolling in The Reading Roadmap.

You might be asking yourself how things will be different this time… worried you might invest in “another one of those PD trainings” and not see results.

I know we don’t know each other very well yet, but I can promise you this: There is nothing I leave out of The Reading Roadmap when it comes to helping you get bigger teaching results.

This isn’t one of those courses where I’m going to offer you an upsell to the “next level” or leave out some “add-on download package” that would make implementing it easier.

I won’t do that.

I’m laying it ALL out for you. I’m making it easy on you. The Reading Roadmap is where your long journey of seeing slow, lack-luster teaching results ENDS.
