We have both been teaching for over 20 years. We have been trained through Teachers College at Columbia University in both reading and writing workshop. We have participated in as well as presented numerous professional development opportunities.
We strongly believe in meeting the individual student where they are. We see the value in individualizing instruction to meet student needs in order to help them grow more as an independent learner. We strive to build upon skills that they are already doing well by pushing them to develop more strategies to deepen their thinking. We also understand the importance of choice in both reading and writing.
