Currently I am a K-8 Reading Specialist and Literacy Coach for my district.
I have also taught Middle School and High School ELA as well as preschool, so I've done a little bit of everything with reading and writing from working with those just learning their letters and sounds to remediation to teaching AP Literature and Language classes.
Everything I do is based on the belief that students learn best when their materials are meaningful, engaging, and appropriately challenging. Students are eager to learn when learning is fun, and I aim to spark that passion for learning in all students.
The way I do this is by creating products and resources with students in mind. I love making activities for students that allow them to explore, create, and connect.
Please feel free to browse my TPT store for resources that will spark a love of learning for students!
