I am a professor at a state college in New Jersey. I'm the owner of ELA Seminars and love making educational products, creating custom seminars, and providing job-embedded professional development for English Language Arts teachers. I have taught at the upper-elementary, middle, secondary and college levels. From 2007-2011 I served as a Teaching Learning Facilitator/Literacy Coach.
