Who We Are & What We Do!

Our goal is to get children to love to learn as much as our staff does!

Reading Escapades and Math Explorers accomplishes this through customized games and unique teaching strategies that are developed individually for your child.

Do you feel that your children’s education is important to their success in life?

If the answer is YES, then our educational coaches can help your children reach their maximum potential while they are having fun and being nurtured.

This is a service that you won’t find at big-name learning centers.  

Your child is not just a number to us!

We offer a variety of reading and math clubs, book discussions, and private tutoring for most subjects. We also offer day camps to help your child feed his or her curiosity, foster a love of learning, and succeed in life.

Christine Allen

Youth Success Coach

While I love learning new things, I really enjoy showing students how exciting it is to gain knowledge themselves. Seeing the light in a child’s eyes when they finally understand something is really rewarding. I enjoy a variety of subjects for different reasons. I love reading and analyzing because there is no right answer. On the other hand, I love math and science because there always is a right answer. When not helping students, I enjoy reading, skiing, hiking, and swimming.

I am so blessed to be able to help Christine and the rest of the coaches get their students to be the best they can be.  I have been working in the education field for twenty-five years and love to see the students grow and develop.  When not at Reading Escapades & Math Explorers, I’m taking care of my two teenage children. 


Miss Stacia

Event Planner/Marketing

I fell in love with learning in school and ultimately teaching others about my interests at a young age. My love for education has led me to ascertain a teaching certificate in agriculture and general science to share my love of farming, animals, and PA wildlife with others. I am a proud mother of two young boys and my greatest joy is helping them explore and learn about the world around them. I get the same fulfillment working with a student as they conquer a project, assignment, or a problem and gain further understanding in their education journey. In my free time I am usually outside exploring on the farm with my husband, two sons, and our dog Dodger!


Miss Jen


Growing up I have always enjoyed helping others. Working here at REME helps me to continue that. I have lived in Palmerton for most of my life. I absolutely love this little town with everything it has to offer. I graduated from Palmerton and went to college for Early Childhood Education and Psychology. I have an amazing son and a wonderful fiance. We have two ferrets (Falcor and Princess) and just recently got a puppy (Leo). I enjoy reading, cooking, music, and trying new things. My favorite thing to do is spend time with my family and friends.


Mister Crosby

Education Coach/IT

I love education! After graduation from Palmerton High School, I went on to pursue a Bachelor’s in Applied Mathematics and Physics; two subject which I deeply love. I found that learning new things can be difficult and boring, but it doesn’t always have to be! I like to bring this angle of fun and excitement to my lessons regardless of what we are learning about as a means of appealing to students. With over 6 years of tutoring experience in a variety of topics, I try to bring my very best to the table with every session. As a new father, I spend a lot of my free-time watching my son grow day by day, but at night you can catch me at Spillanes Fit where I train for powerlifting.

Miss Daisy

Education Coach

Growing up I found it hard to focus on my work because I didn’t possess the right tools to find interest in what I was learning. My high school physics teacher once told me “you don’t have to like it to have fun with it”. Eventually, I learned new ways to get my brain involved in subjects I didn’t enjoy. Using a more hands-on learning experience allowed me to find focus and interest in harder subjects. Since then, I’ve made it my mission to prove that learning with the right tools can allow someone to go further than they ever have imagined. I hope to provide the same perspective my physics teacher showed me to students who struggle with their interests in school. I enjoy math for the universal language it provides and history for the lessons it continues to teach every passing generation. During my spare time I enjoy hiking, gardening, playing guitar, and baking goods for my friends.


Miss Haley

I am currently in college working on my degree as a Veterinary Technician. I have a very strong passion for animals and everything in the line of work. I live on a farm where we raise cows and chickens. We also have a beautiful garden with many crops like strawberries, asparagus, and lettuce. I love working with young kids and love helping them understand what is going on in school. I am a very fun and adventurous and love to try new techniques. I am super flexible and strive to help students enjoy learning. I have 2 dogs and 2 cats that keep me busy in my free time. I crochet and play games when my animals are not occupying my time.


Mister Zane

I am so excited to work here are REME! I'm married to my amazing wife Sandy and have six of my own children who I love to go on adventures with, learn new things, and do all kinds of fun activities with. I'm a teacher and a wrestling coach outside of REME, and love to help students discover that they can do things they didn't know they were capable of!


Miss Megan

Education Coach

I’m an elementary school teacher with a passion for learning. I’ve always dreamed of becoming a teacher and being able to help others find ways to succeed. During school, I fell in love with reading and the fundamentals of why and how to teach reading, especially to students who struggle. I’m a firm believer in finding your own way to learn new things, no matter how “different” they may be. In my free time I enjoy reading, hiking, playing with my dog, and spending time with friends and family.


Miss Ann

Education Coach

Reading has always been one of my favorite hobbies. My love for reading and working with beginning readers led me to choose a career in the field of education. I earned my Master's Degree in both Elementary and Special Education and have been teaching for over ten year. When I am not teaching, I enjoy spending time with my family and my cat along with enjoying my hobbies of photography, scrapbooking, dance, and, of course, reading.
