Hello Folks!

I am so excited that you are visiting my Professional Development Center.  And because you are here, I will assume that you want to help students become proficient readers and writers. Well, it is my mission to help you do that.

You can enroll in one of my courses (on this website) where I show you exactly how to integrate phonics, handwriting, spelling, vocabulary, grammar, and teach students how to sound out words to read and write.

You can invite me to co-teach with you in your home or in your classroom via my student-facing videos hosted on my subscription-based Alice Nine Academy.

During the past 30 years, I’ve worked with thousands teachers and parents. I’ve written fourteen manuals that are available in my online Store.  I have filmed over 2,000 videos for professional development and for remote/blended lessons. And I developed PhonogramPage --a free phonics resource for teachers and parents. But before that, it all began in my multi-grade classroom.

I am married to the love of my life. Our three children have blessed us with nineteen grandchildren, five of whom are adopted from Russia, Ukraine, and Bulgaria.

Follow me on Twitter @jcsnine and Facebook and on my blog “Talking with Letters” where I share from my life journey!

It's a great day to be teaching reading and writing!

Alice Nine
