Rick McAtee is the President and Chief Academic Officer of Turning a New Page (TNP). Rick holds an M.S. degree in Reading and has over 30 years of educational experience, 16 years in the classroom working with students from kindergarten through 8th grade and the past 14 years working directly in the field of Reading. He has worked as a National Reading Consultant and Staff Developer for major publishing companies. His work with large urban school districts to raise scores through teacher training and staff development earned him the recognition to be asked to work with inmates in a Federal Prison. The charge was to take inmates reading at 2nd grade and below and enable them to get a GED. His success with this project was documented in the Journal of Adolescent and Adult Literacy and an ABC special, Reading: Your ABC’s to Success, hosted by Kelly Ripa. Rick’s work with adult struggling readers enabled Turning a New Page to produce materials designed to prevent younger students, who are struggling with reading, from having to face the same bleak future.
Rick developed Cracking the Code and Writing Steps to Success . Rick is a children’s author and continues to write books in the Alphabetland Series.
