ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Debra Adams is a retired teacher. She spent 10 years teaching Spanish at Chicago Public Schools out of 20+ years in the field. One thing that was different about her teaching method, was the focus on phonics. Debra’s students read better in Spanish than they did in English. She decided that if she could simplify foreign language learning, she could create similar strategies, in English, for struggling readers. Her reading videos were used tutor students in pre-k, daycare and K-3 students in Summer Bridge programs.
