Steve does not remember much of the process by which he learned to read.  He does remember that most of his early literacy experiences resolved around listening to stories like Winnie the Pooh read by his parents and independently consuming comic books and other “non-traditional” early education materials. 

He has developed early literacy computer programs for Laureate Learning Systems in Winooski Vermont, created wed-based music education programs for GVOX Interactive Music in Philadelphia PA, and taught music at Smilie Elementary School in Bolton, Vermont. In 2001 he started his own business, Effective Assessment, which provides online education systems for assessment, curriculum development, data collection, and reporting.
