A Happy Learner is a space for lovers of language, books & teaching (and perhaps tea, too!)

My name is Christin. I’m a certified Speech-Language Pathologist who chose this field because of that second word: language. Avid reader, dedicated anglophile, & wannabe author-poet, the only thing that makes me happier than creating products to stoke you and your students’ love of language & books is a hot cup of tea and uninterrupted reading time.


So now you’re wondering…

What will I find here?

Yes, you know I’m an SLP. I’ve told you I’m a bookworm and that I’m obsessed with England.

But what do I want to offer you?


✨ Resources & products in core language areas, including vocabulary, syntax, phonology, morphology, & pragmatics.


✨ Resources & products for phonics, reading fluency, & reading comprehension.


✨ Resources & products for reading & writing literature, poetry, and non-fiction.


✨ Resources & products for Bible literacy. 


 ✨ Resources & products to guide your own reading life & wellness.
