About

I have 30 years of experience as a literacy specialist and classroom teacher. My extensive training includes; The Science of Reading, Executive Functions, ADHD, Dyslexia, twice-exceptional and more. My passion is learning about SWI (Structured Word Inquiry) which proves our English language is not irregular as we have all incorrectly been taught (and children are still being told), but rather is based on meaning and structure. I will use terminology your child will be learning in the classroom, yet I will provide him/her with an understanding of why the words have certain spellings. Lisa Barnett, a leading expert states, "Words have connections that are sometimes not so easy to see, but once they are made apparent, unveil so much about the way our English language is based on conveying meaning and structure; eliminating any exceptions or rules to memorize. Students who are shown the structure, meaning, historical connections to roots, and are given the phonology behind words are transformed into deeper thinkers armed with evidence and critical thinking experiences." Please see the following link to a blogpost by Lisa Barnett.
