TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Writer and writing teacher Darcy Pattison (www.mimshouse.com) has provided professional development for over 25 years in English Language Arts, especially writing topics. Her picture books for children focus on writing or science/nature topics. Twice her books have been named NSTA Outstanding Science Trade Books. She's also received an NCTE Notable Book award.

MY TEACHING STYLE

The best writing is revised writing; language arts is best accomplished with lots and lots of hands-on reading.
NGSS-NextGen Science standards need great books to support the objectives.
