TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I started my elementary teaching career in 1988, working primarily in grades 2-4. For most of the last decade, I was a reading interventionist, teaching one-on-one and small groups of K-6 students on individualized learning plans. Now you can find me on my Poetry for Teaching Facebook Page and my Poetry for Teaching Blog

MY TEACHING STYLE

I would describe my teaching style as creative, but very targeted. As an interventionist, I usually had about 20-25 minutes for each lesson...so every moment had to count! I've always loved reading, writing (and collecting) poetry, but I started writing short, phonics targeted poetry because it allowed me to pack a lot of content into a very limited amount of instructional time. I strive to write curriculum which excites kids of all abilities to learn, while helping teachers to teach it quickly, creatively, and without a lot of prep.
