I have been teaching various students, various subjects, at various levels (preschool to college) for the last ten years. During those ten years, I have completed two masters programs, American Studies and Reading Education, and have received the honor of becoming National Board Certified. I am currently certified in Reading K-12, language arts 6-8, social studies 6-8 and even family and consumer studies.I am now delving into the world of elementary school, as I am a literacy facilitator in a title one school. I am working toward to completion of my PhD in Curriculum and Instruction so, I may not always know what I am talking about but I try to find people who do. All the ideas I put on this site are research based and align with the new common core. Any corrections are always appreciated, ideas are solicited, and compliments are greatly rewarded.
