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.

I enjoy motivating students and helping them conceptualize and apply sophisticated literacy skills. I especially like providing teachers with lessons that are easy to execute and engaging for multi-level learners. Secrets of Teaching, LLC ELA Seminars, LLC
