Hey there! I’m Malia – a National Board Certified Teacher turned lesson planner, curriculum designer, and classroom cheerleader.

I started teaching back in 2003 and fell instantly smitten with students’ magical lightbulb moments.

I went on to earn my National Board Teaching Certification and my Master’s from Stanford University.

And then life took an unexpected turn…

I was on a year-long maternity leave for our second son and I was missing the classroom.

Maybe it was my newborn sleep deprivation or those extra cups of caffeine I was drinking just to make it through our busy days, but I decided to dive feet first into a brand new company….

I started sharing the games I was playing with our preschooler on my brand new website called Playdough to Plato.

And that site quickly grew! Pretty soon I was getting emails and DMs from teachers around the world who wanted to help students have MORE reading growth with LESS planning time.

So I created The Science of Reading Formula to help you do just that!

If I could add just one more hour to my day, I could probably solve a modern mystery… or at least cook a homemade meal every night.

But since we all have the same 24 hours in a day, let’s figure out how to make the most of it. Sound good?

I created The Science of Reading Formula to help you teach reading smarter, not harder.

Inside, you’ll get everything you need to meet ALL of your students’ unique needs so you can end nagging teacher doubt and overwhelm once and for all. Our tight knit community is in this together.

Try it out for yourself!

You can cancel at any time, which means you’ve got nothing to lose and so many magical student breakthroughs and relaxing weekends to gain.

Enrollment opens to the public twice a year so request your invite RIGHT HERE!
