★ Reading intervention teacher: Grades K-5 ★ Former elementary classroom teacher for 10 years: Grades 3-5 ★ TpT seller: Creating tools to help build strong parent-teacher partnerships. ★ Mom of 3 boys: Drawing on my experience as a teacher and a mom, I try to create easy-to-use resources that work well for both parents and teachers.
I love making creative and easy-to-use tools to help teachers build connections with parents; and resources for parents who want meaningful ways to extend learning at home.
I've led various district staff development training sessions on differentiation during reading and writing instruction, word work strategies and inquiry-based science. I was also a presenter and demonstration teacher for my district's new teacher induction program.
