TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I've been teaching for almost 30 years and I love it! I'm also a national literacy consultant and author of books for teachers on literacy practices (see list below). I just finished a series of three picture books about a precocious little writer: Stella! Right now, I work as a K-6 instructional coach in a Title I school. I love working and learning with teachers and students every day! Please see my blog at www.janielwagstaff.blogspot.com, and join me on Literacy Matters on Facebook or Twitter, instagram, periscope = @janielwagstaff. I love making new teaching friends! Happy teaching!

MY TEACHING STYLE

I'm a constructivist, at heart. I believe in hands-on, minds-on, active, reflective, personally-relevant learning for all children! BALANCE and PURPOSE are key and JOY is always a given!
