I've been teaching my whole life. First, with my teddy bears; next with K-12 students; and currently, with pre-service candidates. My specially area is literacy education with a special emphasis on content literacy, foundations of reading and writing, and instructional technology. I love strategies that make differentiation easier. Working in a state that is a leader in the Common Core movement, means I'm up to date on the latest and best trends and strategies in K-12 education.
