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

Whether you are a homeschooling parent like me, or a person interested in learning English as a second language, this website is for you!

English skills are so foundational to one's educational success. It is my desire to come alongside both homeschool parents, and ESL learners, as a friend and guide on you or your child's journey to English literacy and fluency.

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- for those new to teaching reading and writing to their children, and to those ESL students who want to improve their English conversation skills. I hope I can help you on your journey, and make it as clear and smooth as possible. Let's get started.
