The Story of Reading in Action
Erin began taking dance lessons at the age of 3. She continued lessons throughout her years of school and it became her form of exercise, expression, and fun. Meanwhile, at the age of 7, Erin decided she was going to be a teacher when she grew up.
A lover of phonics and all things reading and spelling, she pursued her passion and double majored in Elementary Education and Dance Education, followed by a Masters in Reading.
After teaching in a public school system for 10 years and having her third baby during Covid, Erin wanted to explore different ways of sharing her passions with her students.
She wanted to combine her love of reading and her love of creative movement in a way that would benefit children. After being cooped up for months, she knew that kids were craving opportunities for socialization and interaction. She began teaching a live version of Reading in Action through her town's recreation department.
The live class was a hit, and Erin wanted to find a way to share the class with more children.
Reading in Action video lessons allow active children to learn in a way that works for them, from the comfort of home, while still receiving literacy instruction grounded in evidence.
