Whitney obtained a master's degree in education policy reform from Stanford University. Her focus was on educational leadership.
After several subsequent years in ministry, she returned two years ago to teaching in a public elementary school. She taught third grade reading and writing in a Title 1 school with students who were often coming to third grade reading on a first grade level. She quickly adapted, and took numerous courses where she learned how to teach actual phonics, the way it used to be taught long ago. She isnow confident this method works far better than the "whole language" methodology with which she grew up.
If your child is struggling with basic decoding skills and is reading behind grade level, she can help.
