Empowering. Joyful. Incomparable.

Each Spark student has their own individualized reading program. Students participate in one-on-one reading sessions every day to ensure success.

Rosalie Franzese Napolitano, MA, is a Reading Specialist, Best-Selling Author, Wilson Certified Instructor, Literacy Coach, Orton-Gillingham Trained Instructor, Reading Recovery Teacher, and Former Adjunct Professor at NYU with over thirty years as an elementary school teacher. After seeing students not get the help they needed to thrive, she developed the Spark! Literacy Program changing the standard approach to teaching reading and writing. Because of Miss Rosalie’s extensive experience, she has a very eclectic and joyous approach to teaching literacy. She understands the importance of an effective early education reading program and she trains our staff and oversees the implementation of the program.
