I have been teaching for 18 years and have taught almost every subject from Kindergarten to grade 9. Most of this time was spent teaching literacy by working with students below grade level in numeracy and literacy and teaching "regular" (whatever that means) and gifted students in middle school, language arts. I have worked as technology and assessment lead teacher at my school and enjoy finding opportunities to continue this learning.
Literacy is my real passion. I love to write myself AND teach writing. I use the 6 traits and balanced literacy models in my teaching. I know that for many teachers writing is hard to teach and assess so I plan to spend more time creating products to support writing.
