TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Nancy Walentas taught most elementary grades before becoming an elementary and secondary reading specialist. Early on she saw that teachers she served needed help, and the materials available were not adequate to address student needs. She began developing holistic, hands-on materials to teach literacy skills to the wide range of students she serviced. The positive response and tremendous skills gains students made when utilizing her materials launched her into a career of manipulative materials development. In time she began instructing practical reading courses for the University of Virginia and later for the University of Colorado in which teachers learned to create and use individualized, hands-on materials to build literacy skills. After years of laying the groundwork, Nancy launched Reading Manipulatives in 1996. These are the types of outstanding materials that teachers made in less hectic and rigid times. Ironically, the active involvement fostered by manipulatives is more beneficial than ever due to the pace and interactive nature of life today. Additionally, the manipulatives are ideal for addressing skills deficiencies in students of all ages and abilities.
