We enjoy delivering training to teachers and administrators across the United States as well as developing interventions and teaching struggling readers. Our approach is fun and engaging, as we are a walking billboard for visual literacy! We use photos, pictures, books, a variety of multimedia and video clips, as well as environmental print to introduce difficult skills to students. When they truly understand the skill, we move the skill to black and white text examples. By using this method, we are able to produce memorable, vs. memorized, learning!

We are identical twins and we are six feet tall. We truly enjoy training teachers and administrators across the U.S. as well as providing interventions for struggling students. When we were in the classroom fulltime, we worked with AAA Travel during the summers and were blessed to travel as tour guides throughout Europe, Hawaii, Australia, New Zealand, Russia, and across the United States. We are also musicians, having taught piano for many years and currently are members of a community orchestra (Pat-violin, Pam-flute).
