Course Instructor

Janna Coates

I am a licensed K-8 teacher with 5 years of teaching experience and 23 years of tutoring experience. I have my Master’s Degree in Reading and Literacy from Walden University. I am also a mom of 4 kiddos and wife of 23 years to an amazing high school English teacher.

I want to arm parents and caretakers with the tools they need to build the foundations for their children to become confident readers. I believe there are several simple things parents can do at home before their children even enter kindergarten that will set them up for reading success.

“This program ties together many activities I already do with my daughter every day with easy ways to help her improve her letter awareness and see huge improvements right away! So many of these activities and games are so simple to implement but I would have never thought of all them on my own. It helps to know the educational theory behind these games and think about how they are helping her form new associations between letters and words while she thinks she’s just playing a fun game! I’ve already tried a couple of these quick activities, and just seeing her light up when she makes new connections between words and letters is all the measurement I need to know the positive impact this is having on her learning!”
