Spencer Russell is the Founder of Toddlers CAN Read. He is a former kindergarten and first-grade teacher who was recognized as one of the best teachers in his city, state, and national charter network. After winning four different teaching awards, Spencer left the classroom to spend more time at home with his son.
As a dad, he learned that the same strategies that worked to teach older students to read also worked with his son at 18 months. So after teaching his son to read by two years old, Spencer organized everything he knew into three online courses (the Toddlers CAN Read program) in order to help parents and caregivers across the world teach their little ones how to read, too. He has since gained over 1.9 million followers across social media who love his approach to reading and aims to create the most accessible and effective early childhood literacy program in the world.
