Download Free 30 Simple Tips To Build Reading Confidence



Hi, I'm Shauntelle Modeste,M.Ed.

I'm your Reading Specialist.

I'm a professional online educator and I successfully grow confident elementary and middle school readers and mentor parents on how to help their readers at home.

I understand all to well what it means to not have your child challenged and supported in ways that pours into the destiny God has purpsed for them. You can read more here about my story of triumps after saying "no" to the status quo.

After 20+ years in the education field as a public school teacher and reading specialist, I desire to help other students whose parents say "no" to mediocre education through the founding of my own school. I continue to foster students' spiritual, academic, and intellectual needs and serve them well with care, compassion, and capability through my business, Ahead Of The Curve Academy.

" Literature transforms human experience and reflects it back to us, and in that reflection we can see our own lives and experiences as part of a larger human experience. Reading, then, becomes a means of self-affirmation, and readers often seek their mirrors in books.”
