I am a K - 12 Reading Specialist with a love of Reading and Writing. I especially enjoy writing poems and working on strategies to develop vocabulary skills.
I encourage every student to be the best version of themselves. :)

Welcome to my store! I am a mom, teacher, author, and a co-owner of a towing and repair facility with my husband. I have several books that have been published, and I am currently working on a few more! My first book A to Z Character Education for the Classroom was published in 2013. This activity book is full of poems and coinciding activities that are being used in schools and homes across the globe to teach character education. Did I mention that the poems go great with the bucketfilling concept? As a matter of fact, it is endorsed by Carol McCloud, author of Have You Filled a Bucket Today? Check it out and let me know what you think! My second published book is Be the Best Version of You: A Teacher's Poem to Her Students. This book started as a poem that I wrote for my middle school kiddos to always remind them to be the best version of themselves. My third published book is Can You Dig It? All about the Temperate Soil Profile. Yes, it is about dirt! I taught Science class for ten years before becoming a Reading Specialist, and my sixth graders always requested to sing my Soil Song. As a matter of fact every year a few would return to school and ask for a copy...this book is for them! I hope it inspires others to investigate the earth around them. It would be a great addition to your Science curriculum. My fourth book is "Driver Dad: Towman to the Rescue," inspired by our towing family. My fifth book is "Elf Olaf, Santa's Magical Gift." If you love ferrets and leaning about the spirit of giving, check it out!! I love to write and I can't wait to share my current books and future books with you! Head on over to my Facebook page and give it a "like"! Hope to hear from you!
