I have worked with teachers, students and staff in Texas, Florida, Washington D.C. and Maryland.
I change my approach to instruction and style every year with my students. I refer to various approaches and tweak them for my small and whole group instruction. The Daily Five and CAFE are a large part of my practice.
National Board Certified Teacher- Literacy: Reading and Language Arts/ Early and Middle Childhood
I have a Bachelors of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies with a Minor in Reading from Baylor University and Masters of Curriculum and Instruction from the University of Maryland.
I have worked in various parts of the country because of my husband's previous career in the Navy. With that, I was able to learn from and experience several approaches to instruction. I am a mismatch of the approaches, but in a good way, of course. I am now in Texas, and I plan to be here for a while. I have been told by many educator friends that I should share my resources, and I am now using this to share with a larger group. I made my materials to work well with both Texas and Common Core standards. I hope you find my materials useful and beneficial in our profession. After all, we are a huge part of what will make the future, and to think that I helped someone that I don't know reach a child I never met, is a cool feeling.
