"Teaching reading IS rocket science!"

"Teaching reading IS rocket science!"

--Dr. Louisa Moats

We can help make it easier.

Hi! I'm Annemarie!

My passion for increasing children’s literacy skills began in earnest during my first (and almost my last) year of teaching. All of my students were significantly below grade level, and  I realized I either needed to find another profession or learn how to teach kids to read. (You can read the whole story here.) That started my lifelong pursuit to make learning to read and write attainable for all kids. Eventually that became a pursuit to empower as many teachers as possible to do the same for their students.
