Smart Me™ originated totally by inspiration after the birth of my youngest daughter, who was born with Down syndrome. Putting my law career on hold to be available for her (and my other children) full-time, the [Math] educator in me RE-surfaced out of the blue with a desire-turned-passion to create early learning tools that help children build the foundational skills needed for learning, primarily in math and reading. The original Smart Me™ educational workbooks and DVDs – Colors and Shapes, Letters and Sounds, and Ready to Read! served as my special "gift" to my daughter to help her learn abc's and 123's at home in preparation for school learning. These Pre-K and Kindergarten level workbooks and DVDs were designed and created, by me, to provide her with focused visual and auditory learning as well as memory and fine motor development. They worked! At age three, my daughter could identify every primary color and basic shape, and could identify and sound out almost all letters of the alphabet. By age four, she knew all letters and their sounds. Her Exceptional Early Learning Program (EELP) teachers were astonished at her level of ability.
I soon realized that Smart Me™ was not just a gift for my daughter, but also MY gift to Make a Difference in Education for ALL children! Having worked as a Math teacher, educational programs director, private tutor, long-term math substitute teacher, etc., I have always known the critical importance of children mastering foundational skills in early grades for greater academic success in higher grades. With that knowledge and the desire for ALL children to build strong foundational skills, Smart Me™ Educational Products developed its products from just Pre-K and Kindergarten to Pre-K through 5th Grade! While I have heard and continue to hear great reports that Smart Me™ Preschool products was/is instrumental in successfully preparing children for Kindergarten, AND that Smart Me™ Kindergarten products are of the BEST available in reinforcing skills taught in Kindergarten in preparation for first grade, ALL Smart Me™ grade level products offer children a healthy, EFFECTIVE dose of practice, review, and reinforcement needed to catch up, stay on track, or to get ahead. Smart Me™ wants to be a household name with products that grow with your children. Our motto is: "Be as Smart as YOU can be!"
