I am passionate about reading and writing, and this is central to my work as an educator. Whether I am discussing a book with a group of 12th grade seniors, teaching curriculum theory with teacher credential students, or assisting veteran teachers with implementing core standards and reading intervention strategies, my students are always the focus of my teaching. I value a positive, energetic, and creative learning space where professionals can work together to improve their practice and help their students become lifelong readers and writers! My goals for my online professional development courses are to provide relevant, timely, and engaging material that teachers can bring back into their classrooms. Learning is a lifelong journey for teachers and students - come learn with me and celebrate reading!
