I have developed a successful phonics/reading program recognized as outstanding in Colorado. I would like to make the program available across the US. I can pay an hourly rate or if anyone is looking for possible long-term income, I can provide shares inside a corporation to share profit. The possibility of marketing reading books - each one at a reading level that incorporates the skills that a student has already mastered - is already under consideration. These books would need illustrations and could be marketed as a different series at each level.
I spent 25 years as an elementary teacher and 5 years as a reading specialist in a local school district. My program has several unique features never seen in others on the market. I have sold portions of the program to schools in other districts, have made reading presentations in several school districts, and was a featured speaker at a tri-county reading conference. Program gets excellent results with advanced students, as well as struggling readers and those with dyslexia.
I spent 20 years as a successful business woman marketing wedding veils and hats to bridal stores across the country. My partner and I established a business to sell manufactured homes, providing septic systems, garages, wells, etc. if customer wished. After becoming one of the largest dealers in El Paso county we retired after 10 years, passing the business on to our children. We have built or rehabbed several 4-plexes and apartment buildings, selling for a healthy profit. Since 2004 we have developed subdivisions for both manufactured and custom homes in the county and are continuing at present. My track record in establishing successful businesses speaks for itself. I look forward to hearing from anyone who prefers an hourly wage or who would want to venture into a partnership.
