2 Sisters

Known to many as "The Sisters," Gail Boushey (left) and Joan Moser (right) are passionate educators who have collaborated throughout their careers with a single vision in mind: to find a replicable, reliable way to teach children how to be independent lifelong learners, starting in their earliest years.

The 2 Sisters are the authors of the best-selling books The Daily 5: Fostering Literacy Independence in the Elementary Grades; and The CAFE Book: Engaging All Students in Daily Literacy Assessment & Instruction; more than a dozen professional development DVDs; and many, many articles available on this website.

Gail and Joan, who really are sisters, started their teaching careers in North America and now work with teachers and students throughout the world. They are elementary teachers with more than 60 years of combined instructional experience in grades K-6 and in Special Education. In addition to being classroom teachers, they have worked as a Reading Resource Specialist and a Literacy Coach.

They established The Daily CAFE website as a resource for educators in 2008 and have continued to develop the knowledge base ever since.

"We want what every teacher wants: effective teaching methods that can adapt as things change, and to lead our children to a lifetime of learning." —Gail Boushey and Joan Moser


Carolyn Rembert

"Our work with “The Sisters” has been a “breath of fresh air.” 

Staff are excited and rejuvenated by the opportunity to see research translated into classroom practice.

Vibrant and energetic, Joan and Gail bring the "real life” expertise of educators that are involved with children on a daily basis.  Through our staff development, they have helped us to be more thoughtful about assessments.  We have learned to use assessments in planning instruction. 

Learning the management strategies important to small group instruction in an interactive classroom, our students become excited engaged learners. 

It has been an exciting journey for our staff and for our school community."
