Welcome to my blog! I’m Karen Milone, and I’m passionate about empowering homeschooling parents to teach reading effectively to their children. As a Reading Specialist and advocate for literacy, I firmly believe that every child can learn to read and that strong reading skills are the foundation for success in life.

My Journey:

My journey in the field of education began by watching 2 incredible teachers who made me think I could be a teacher. While teaching, I formed a deep fascination for the process of decoding and the magic it holds in unlocking the world of knowledge. Throughout my years as a dedicated educator, I have witnessed the transformative power of reading and its profound impact on a child’s confidence, imagination, and academic achievements.

Teaching Homeschoolers:

One of my greatest joys is working with homeschooling families to equip them with the tools, strategies, and resources necessary to cultivate strong reading skills in their children. I understand the unique challenges and rewards of homeschooling, and I am here to support and guide parents in their journey of nurturing their child’s reading abilities.

Empowering Parents:

My approach to teaching reading goes beyond the conventional methods. I am obsessed with ensuring that students not only learn to read but also master the art of decoding. Decoding allows children to grasp the mechanics of language, enabling them to tackle new words, understand complex texts, and become independent readers.

Belief in Every Child:

I firmly believe that all children can become proficient readers. With the right guidance, encouragement, and tailored instruction, each child can develop the necessary skills to unlock the world of literature and knowledge. I am committed to fostering a love for reading and empowering children to embrace reading as a lifelong skill.

Join Me:

I aim to share my expertise, insights, and practical strategies for teaching reading effectively. Whether you’re a homeschooling parent, an educator, or simply someone passionate about literacy, I invite you to join me on this journey of empowering children through the joy of reading.

Remember, reading is not only a fundamental skill but also a gateway to endless possibilities. Together, let’s ignite a love for reading and equip our children with the tools they need to thrive in life.

Thank you for being here, and I look forward to embarking on this exciting adventure with you!

Warmest regards,

Karen Milone
