About Sunshine Scripting Systems
Dr. Jackie Sund
Dr. Sund holds under-graduate and graduate degrees from the University of Washington and a doctorate in educational leadership from Seattle University. While her training is in the design field, she is an educator by profession. Before her retirement, Dr. Sund held faculty positions at Western Washington University and the University of Washington. It was during her volunteer work at an elementary school that Dr. Sund became aware of the problems young children were having learning to write. It has become her mission to revitalize handwriting education. To that end she has established Sunshine Scripting Systems with her colleague, Bon Vernarelli, as a center for research and development of handwriting techniques .
Bon holds a B.A in design from Western Washington University and an M.B.A in organizational leadership from City University of Seattle. As an artist, designer, metalsmith, and musician, Ms. Vernarelli fully appreciates the value of fine motor skills. “Handwriting is the foundation for all fine motor skill development and is essential for success in other learning, creative expression, and many rewarding careers. When Dr. Sund alerted me to the trend away from handwriting education in public schools, and introduced her model and method emphasizing motor memory, I had to get involved.”
