Literary Specialist and Consultant
Hi! I’m Alison Ryan and I love getting kids excited about reading and writing. I also love getting teachers excited about teaching literacy!
I share ideas and tools to help teachers simplify their planning and create engaging lessons. I believe that teachers should have access to materials that are both easy to use and written around best instructional practices.
I work with young children and their families, and I present professional development sessions for teachers. I have a master’s degree in literacy leadership, experience as a classroom teacher in Pre-K through 2nd grade (general education, bilingual, and dual language), and experience as a reading specialist.
How HOPE Unlimited supports Alison:

What Alison says about HOPE:
Starting work with Beth and her team was one of the best decisions I made in 2016. Beth helps manage my email, so I have more time to connect with other teachers and create teaching materials. She helps with a task that I never imagined asking for help with – but I am so glad that I did! I feel less overwhelmed when tackling my inbox each day. Plus, Beth is so professional and fun to work with! She’s also connected me with some other fantastic members of the HOPE team for social media and other media tasks. I love working with Beth and the HOPE team!

We enjoy helping her help teachers and children develop the very important life skill of reading well.
