Welcome to I'm so honored to have you here.

Whether you are a homeschooling parent like me, or a person interested in learning or teaching English reading and writing, this website is for you!

Good English reading and writing skills are foundational for success in many areas of life, not just in the world of academia. It is my desire to come alongside both homeschool parents, and Second Language Learners, as a friend and guide on your English literacy journey.

That's what this website is all about. 

I've created this page with links to some of my very best resources and action steps, to be a starting point for those new to this site. I hope I can help you or your child on your literacy journey, and make it as clear and painless as possible. Let's get started!
