about me

Roots & Little Wings began after I spent several years in the educational field. I graduated from The University of Georgia with a Bachelor’s Degree in Early Childhood Education. I am a former elementary teacher with an endorsement in mathematics. I am also trained in the Orton-Gillingham Multi-Sensory Reading Program . After teaching first grade for a couple years, I moved into the city of Atlanta and married my wonderful husband. Soon after I got married, I became the Director of an after school program in Atlanta before I started my own company.

Throughout my entire educational career, I have privately tutored students and always wanted to start my own tutoring company. Therie’s Tutoring Services, LLC began in July of 2008, and I loved every minute of it. Our lives greatly changed once our first precious son was born in July of 2012. I thought I would return to full-time tutoring after he was a few months old but the moment I set eyes on him, I knew he was my main student now. In November 2015, we lovingly welcomed our second son into our lives. I feel so lucky to be both their momma and teacher. My hope is for us to give our boys the gifts of unconditional love, strong roots and little wings in order to soar in their journeys of life.

Roots & Little Wings is our journey to learning and growing in a loving and holistic way. It is a place for you to join us and find simple and creative learning ideas to do with your children at home or for caregivers/teachers to share with your students. I hope you find the ideas and tips helpful and enjoy the glimpses into our journey.

I am also a certified classical yoga instructor who teaches both kids and adult yoga. I am trained in breath work, meditation and classical postures.
