Kristina Smith

Kristina Smith grew up in Crofton, Maryland, a tiny suburb of Annapolis. After graduating high school, she moved to Irvine, California, to attend Irvine Valley College where she majored in psychology. After completing two years, she moved to Tampa, Florida to attend the University of South Florida, where she majored in Sociology. After graduating with her Bachelor of Arts degree, she began her teaching career at Lowry Elementary School, where she taught students with various diagnoses, ranging from grades pre-K to fifth. Wanting to pursue her love of helping children, she attended Florida State University where she graduated with her Master of Social Work degree. This degree allowed her to provide therapy to children with emotional and mental health disorders. After gaining two years of experience, she narrowed her focus back onto children with learning difficulties. Since 2014, she has trained in Orton-Gillingham, taught numerous students who struggle with reading, and has co-authored a curriculum for teachers who wish to help their struggling students with reading. Kristina currently tutors students online and resides in Panama City, Florida with her husband, Peter.

Heather MacLeod-Vidal

Heather grew up in a small town in Connecticut. Upon graduation, she moved to Tampa, Florida, to attend the University of Tampa. She then worked as a classroom teacher in 3rd and 5th grades. Heather began her company, Treetops Educational Interventions, in 2014 after attending her first Orton-Gillingham training. She began tutoring students after school using the Orton-Gillingham method and saw huge growth in children who were not making progress using traditional classroom methods. After that, Heather left the classroom to pursue working full-time with students who have learning differences. She expanded her business to include tutors with different specialties (including co-author Kristina Smith). Heather has attended countless trainings based on the Orton-Gillingham approach and other reading interventions. She is both ESE and reading endorsed.  Heather and Kristina set out to create their own curriculum using the methods they had learned, implemented, and improved over the years. Since their launch on Teachers Pay Teachers in 2017, Heather and Kristina have listed and sold hundreds of products based on the Orton-Gillingham approach. They have also been honored as Milestone sellers on Teachers Pay Teachers. Heather currently works with students who have dyslexia and other learning differences at a Tampa Bay area school. She lives in St. Petersburg, FL with her husband, two children, and a variety of rescue animals.
