We (Mark and Julie) each have over 18 years of teaching experience. We have experience teaching English Language Arts for grades 6, 7 and 8. We have also taught social studies. In 2001, we wrote a book called, "Guiding Adolescent Readers to Success" which outlines our middle school guided reading program. It is published by Shell Education. We are also literacy consultants for various districts in our surrounding area.
We believe our students construct meaning from the books they read and we and strive to put the right book in the hands of every student. We teach using the readers' and writers' workshop model and differentiate our materials and instruction to meet the needs of every student. We also implement the Assessment Literacy/Growth Mindset philosophy in our classrooms.

We are full-time teachers because we enjoy teaching and couldn't imagine leaving the classroom. We are also part-time curriculum developers, teacher educators and consultants.
