I believe in truly balanced literacy that supports and enriches all students. Literacy that uses strategies and skills to create a well rounded, life-long reader. Foundational reading and writing skills start to be missed when we move away from modeling and I hope I can provide some opportunities to help model lessons for classrooms. I believe that you can not remove character education from the classroom. It is clear to me that as soon as you focus too much on educating the mind, over educating the whole student, education fails to live up to its end of the bargain.
