About Us

We are teachers who are passionate about making sure ALL children learn to read.  There are many bright children (and adults) who struggle with reading.  Through excellent brain research brought to life in Stanislas Dehaene’s book Reading in The Brain: The New Science of How we Read and Zaretta Hammond’s research (and book) on Culturally Responsive Teaching and the Brain as well as many other sources, trainings and years of experience we have been able to consistently reach these struggling readers.  We hope the information and materials in this site will help make reading easier for many.

We are passionate about all learning, but this site is focused on a specific part of reading that greatly influences all others: being able to look at a string of letters and read it as a word quickly and fluently.
