TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been an English teacher for over 20 years, beginning with my first job in Kathmandu, Nepal. I have since taught at the middle school, high school, and college levels in Philadelphia, Boston, and currently, Clarks Summit, PA. I have written five books for Scholastic: four about writing workshop and one about reading activities aligned with the CCSS. I speak regularly at national and local conferences. In 2104 I became National Board Certified.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I believe in guiding students thorough writing, group collaboration, self-reflection, discussion, and close reading. I believe in using different learning styles and a variety of methods. I believe in the power of well-written and/or time-tested texts.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

In addition to my B.S. in Education from the University of Scranton, I have an M.S. in Reading Education and M.F.A. in Creative Writing. I am currently working on an Ed.D. in Educational Leadership.
