Founder and President, Logic of English
My interest in teaching reading and spelling began when my twin sons struggled to learn how to read. Through my research to help them, I realized that my previous training in how to teach reading was inadequate. As I learned and taught the phonograms and spelling rules, I understood the implications to all students learning to read and spell, and I wanted to make a difference.  I started the company, Logic of English®, wrote Uncovering the Logic of English, and began developing curriculum and presentations to share what I have learned with others.
