Sing Into Reading offers school visits and private classes
What happens when a singer/dancer/actor realizes that she is really meant to be a teacher? What happens after she gets an M.S.Ed. in Early Childhood Education and a ton of training in Literacy?
She integrates the teaching of Literacy with Music and Movement, and Sing Into Reading is born!
Hi, I'm Risa, a passionate progressive educator, and I teach Literacy through Music and Movement.
I offer private cllasses to a limited number of dedicated families. I work with people of all ages and abilities to bring them to the next step in their literacy journey - with music.
I often speak at schools, conferences, and edu-events of all sorts.
And if you would like a free class, just email me. In your free class, I will ask you about where your children are in their literacy journey, and how I can help. I can't wait to meet you!
