Martha Kovack is the founder, president, and CEO of Sound Readers. She is the creator of Crazy Cards, and an accredited teacher with the Ontario College of Teachers in Canada. Martha is also a certified Orton-Gillingham and Structured Literacy teacher with the Canadian Dyslexia Society, and she has three decades of experience teaching students, teachers, and parents.
After graduating from teacher's college in 1990, Martha was passionate about finding ways to improve the lives of those who are held back by their struggles with learning to read and spell.
She developed Sound Readers® so that she could share what she has learned with educators, and to provide tools to make learning to read easier, more efficient, and more enjoyable!
She created and produced the first set of Crazy Cards back in 1998, and they are still students' (and teachers'!) favourite literacy game!
Martha continues to attend conferences, take courses, study research, and participate in conversations with leading reading researchers around the world to make sure that she stays current with what works.
Martha also currently teaches Language Arts for the Early Childhood Education program at Georgian College in Ontario, Canada.
