Curriculum author of four language arts and writing programs for two publishers for the past fifteen years. I have tested my sixty-plus books of nearly forty thousand pages with over one hundred homeschooled and private tutoring students each year since I began writing curriculum fifteen years ago.
I call the approach of my curriculum books a "Directed Writing Approach." In this approach, I try to leave nothing up to chance. Every aspect of every pre-writing, outlining, writing, grammar, vocabulary, spelling, usage, editing, and revising lesson is laid out in incremental steps. None of my books are "writing idea" books--but rather step-by-step approaches to all types of writing (research reports, essays, creative, story, and more) for grades two through twelve. Additionally, I have written some reading and pre-reading materials through my master's work in Reading Specialist as well as through my private tutoring practice. LanguageLady store contains language arts, writing, and grammar products for grades two through twelve as well as some reading and pre-reading materials for preschool and early elementary students. Here you will find writing lessons, notebooking pages, grammar helps, anchor charts, bulletin board creations, graphic organizers, memory tricks and tips, usage cards, parts of speech lists and techniques, and much more. Additionally, you will find phonics products and pre-reading materials. Lastly, many of my products have audio files in which I explain how to use the product, strategies that have worked for me with my students, and other tips and tricks.
I have written over sixty books for a total of forty thousand pages over the past fifteen years.
Bachelor's Degree from Ball State University in Elementary Education. Master's work in Reading Specialist.
I also write parenting books, workshops, and materials as my husband and I have seven children ages seventeen through thirty-two.
