I have been teaching for almost 30 years in title one schools. Literacy is my passion! Every year I devour as many age appropriate books as I can. I teach book clubs and talk books with students as much as possible. I have also worked in Reading Recovery and believe that every child can learn to read we just need to find the right motivation!
Fun, engaging, and good books. My style is non-punitive while balancing best practice to help all learners.
