TEACHING EXPERIENCE

-13 years and counting: Middle School English Language Arts Teacher (I have taught 6, 7, 8) -9 years and counting: Middle School Literacy Coach (5-8 building)

MY TEACHING STYLE

Student engagement and learning, while maintaining high academic standards, is my number one goal. I use a daily teaching framework which incorporates Word Study, Interactive Read Aloud, Reading Minilesson/Writing Minilesson, and Independent Reading/Writing time. I also try to incorporate one-one-one student conferences or small group instruction such as literature circles daily. With limited time in our daily literacy block, I have found alternating between reading units and writing units to be a great balance and way to manage it all.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

*Getting the opportunity to be trained as a middle school literacy coordinator based on the Literacy Collaborative framework at Lesley University in Cambridge, MA for grades 3-8. *Getting asked and participating on the middle school panel to give feedback on Fountas and Pinnell's Middle School LLI System (Teal). *Having various blog posts from my blog, Middle School Teacher to Literacy Coach, now The Literacy Effect, be featured in "The Big Fresh," Lesley University's, "The Mailbox," the TpT blog, and various blogs from popular magazines.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

-Undergraduate Degree: University of Minnesota Duluth (Secondary Education for Teaching Communication, Arts, and Literature) -Literacy Coordinator Degree: Lesley University -Master's of Education Degree: Viterbo University -Reading Interventionist Degree (K-12): Viterbo University

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I live in Wisconsin with my husband, son, dog, and cat. My favorite things include a good cup of coffee, journaling and reading, and a run outside with my dog.
