HELPING KIDS SEE A WORLD OF DREAMS!
TINA GIANGRANTE AND JOANNE JONES, M.ED.
Joanne's experience as a teacher demonstrated the value in project-based learning. From working on various projects of interest to the students, she witnessed first-hand, children become excited about learning and pride in their ability to articulate it. Joanne began her journey at Temple University where she received her BA Degree in Communications. Eventually, after witnessing the disparities in education of the young child, she decided to obtain a graduate degree from Eastern University, receiving her Master’s Degree in Multi-cultural Education with a concentration on Elementary Education. Joanne believes that conversation is a critical component to reaching children in the most unbiased and inclusive manner. To her words matter. As a professional working directly with children, Joanne has more than 30 years working with children of all ages. Additionally, Tina enrolled at LaSalle and earned her degree in K-12 teacher of the handicapped. She then studied principalship at Widener University and taught special education in New Jersey for several years. After moving back to her hometown of Philadelphia, Tina again furthered her education by becoming certified in the highly-regarded Wilson Reading System (WRS) and establishing the first WRS program at her school. The principles of WRS--a research-based, multisensory learning approach that takes into account multiple forms of intelligence and considers the whole child--remain with her to this day. Over the course of her 31-year career, Tina has successfully instructed dozens of Philadelphia students, who may otherwise never have been able to read.
