Sarah Collinge

Founder & President

Sarah Collinge left the classroom in 2011 to solve a curriculum problem: intermediate students struggled to comprehend the texts they wanted to read and therefore experienced a lack of motivation and desire to read. Since that time, Sarah has diligently worked to solve this problem by authoring the Read Side by Side Reading Program. She now travels world-wide to train teachers in her unique C. I. A. Approach.

Dr. Peter Dewitz

Director of Research

Dr. Peter Dewitz joined the Read Side by Side staff in 2016. After analyzing the top core reading programs on the market, Peter determined that the Read Side by Side Reading Program was far more eloquent in its design. He has since supported the company in marketing the research base of the program.
