TEACHING EXPERIENCE

When I can't find what I want for my classroom, I create it myself. I always have a camera in hand, ready to record my experiences to create engaging articles to share with my students. You'll see my favorite places in my PowerPoints and teaching packs! Besides writing for TpT, I have also written two books on the topic of teaching reading: Summarizing, Paraphrasing, and Retelling and The Forest AND the Trees: Helping Readers Identify Details in Texts and Tests.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My teaching style is thoughtful, reflective, and student-centered. In my reading class, I use guided reading, whole-group instruction, independent reading, and literacy centers to help my students grow as readers. My favorite classroom moments occur when students come to me with unexpected questions, connections, or ideas. This is what makes me come to school each day!

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I have published two books based on my teaching experiences. The first, Summarizing, Paraphrasing, and Retelling, was created from my frustration with teaching summarizing and the lack of resources available. I went back to the research journals to figure out why my students were having trouble and how I could help them. The second book, The Forest AND the Trees, explores how students use details to make inferences, visualize, and learn new information from text. Both books are available from Heinemann.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I love to learn! I graduated from Penn State, and I have a M. Ed. in Language and Literacy from Millersville University.
