Westchester Education Services understands that developing strong reading skills at a young age leads to life-long learning. That’s why literacy education is a cornerstone of our literacy content development team.
Industry veterans with years of experience and passion for education anchor our literacy content team. Anne Ricco leads the literacy team. As our Senior Supervising Editor for Literacy and Humanities, Anne worked directly with Irene Fountas and Gay Su Pinnell, leading the development of F&P readers for Heinemann.
Anne leads a cadre of experienced writers and editors to develop materials that captivate young readers across a variety of components. Our team is focused and passionate about creating high-quality literacy content for both students and teachers. Our standards are very high: we treat your content as if it were our own.
