TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I'm the author-illustrator of 40+ picture books used in elementary classrooms and by homeschoolers across the USA and internationally. TPT members may be familiar with Measuring Penny, Fraction Action, or Crazy Like a Fox: A Simile Story among many other titles with math, language arts, science and other curriculum content. As I develop and post my classroom resources, I love to hear feedback from the experts (you!)

MY TEACHING STYLE

My picture books introduce topics in an engaging visual way, often with multicultural children or animal characters. For TPT, my goal is to create attractive materials that students will have fun with while they're learning something new or reviewing topics they've already been taught. Grade 2 is a typical level for my books but it varies and they are regularly used in lower and higher grades than I'd originally imagined.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

My books have been honored by The National Science Teachers Association, the American Library Association, the Florida Book Awards, and the Parent's Choice Awards, among others.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

After earning a B.A. in Art, a few years later I signed my first publishing contract at the age of 25. Since then I have learned how to illustrate and design my books using digital tools (Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign) mostly by reading how-to books and reading/watching online tutorials. I have visited hundreds of elementary schools in my career and from the start have been inspired by what teachers make happen in classrooms every day. It's fun to see the student projects, bulletin boards, posters, anchor charts, and other "stuff". And now with my Pinterest boards I can see classroom stuff anytime, which has been so motivating!
