TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been in education for 12 years now: my first 10 I spent teaching middle school ELA, and the last two as a Literacy Coach in an elementary building. I have come to learn lots about reading and writing development at many different levels! Even before a TpT curriculum designer, I am a writer, blogging over at BigTime Literacy. Be sure to check out my blog!
