Room to Read Student Phonics Handbook

I just finished co-illustrating a student handbook that will support Grade 1 phonics in Grenadian Primary Schools (See a few of my samples.)
This handbook was created by Room to Read (an international organization that supports literacy development),GSI (a local organization that seeks to strengthen literacy in Grenada) and a select group of Grenadian teachers and Educational officers.
Excited to see how this handbook will improve the way our kids learn.
This is just another step that Grenada is taking to make learning more fun and I'm thrilled to be a part of the process!

Fun diversity project 2015

I recently got this opportunity to design storytelling cards with a unique twist- including diverse characters!  It is very important to have diversity in educational materials because it allows children from different ethnic backgrounds to connect with characters similar to themselves and hence establish  a great sense of self esteem in the young reader.
I'm excited about developing the content for this project and will post more when the storytelling cards become available!
