Well hey there,

I'm Jessica.

I’m your go-to reading coach, ready to sprinkle a bit of bookish magic into your life!

Very into: books (obviously), morning waffles, hugs, and living my best life. Avoiding small talk since 1985.

Back in the day,

I walked the halls of classrooms for a good decade, teaching students of all ages. But I’m truly in my element when it comes to nurturing a love for reading.

 

Nowadays,

you’ll often catch me at home, brewing up reading resources. Armed with a master's degree in Reading, Writing, and Literacy from the University of Pennsylvania (oh yeah!), I'm here to equip you with the tools and support to become a master at helping your kiddos learn to read!

When I’m not buried in books,

my favorite thing to do is spending quality time with my kids, exploring new adventures and playing board games and card games at home. But, don’t get me wrong. I still have to lock myself in the bathroom from time to time to get some quiet time, just like the next mom.

 

But hey, life's all about growth, right? I'm all about striving to be the best version of myself, even if I stumble along the way. So here's to spreading kindness, chasing dreams, and making magic happen!
