The Journey

We spent hundreds of dollars on books, supplies, and manipulatives as I fine-tuned the range of tools, tips, techniques that would served us well.  Along the way, I invited friends and classmates to share in the learning journey – WITS™© (Weekends in the Summer) and other innovative instructional resources, products and activities that introduced and explored core knowledge and grade level competencies for student success.

Knowing the connection between language production, language processing, and academic success in reading, reading comprehension, mathematics, science, social studies and the broader curriculum gave us a Stronger Start™.  

STRONGER START™ – Our Approach.  Our Process.
