About Us

Dear Fellow Teacher,

I first introduced Ready Sets in 1983. In those days, the line was called "Katie Kits" in honor of our beautiful daughter. My teaching career was spent in the Garvey School District in Rosemead, California. Throughout my years of teaching, I developed a variety of engaging study units which were classroom-tested and enjoyed by my own students year after year.

When visiting other classrooms in my school, I would often notice children in different grades busily engaged in Ready Sets activities. Kids enjoyed the seasonal as well as multicultural worksheets. Upper grade students supplemented their social studies texts with the Ready Sets USA series.

In addition to classroom teaching, I also loved playing the piano for our school Glee Club, and taught fiber arts to my students -- including needlepoint, weaving and knitting.

Throughout my career, I continued to develop units which taught skills across the curriculum and were interesting for the kids. The Wonderful Wizard of Oz was a perennial favorite. We currently have several literacy units featuring this beloved children's tale.

Now, after more than thirty years in primary education, I am retired from teaching third grade at Monterey Vista School in the Garvey Elementary School District.

My husband John and I continue to create and sell a wide variety of timely study units for today's busy teachers.

I'm sure Ready Sets will prove to be a valuable teaching tool for you to use year after year in your own primary classroom. Download a set today and use them in your classroom tomorrow!

Educationally yours,
Mary Hopkins
Creator of Ready Sets
