As a 30-year veteran English teacher, I have taught in both public and private schools, at both the secondary and university level. I am especially interested in making high-quality reading instruction and materials available to ALL students.
I work to create content-area readings to help students see that good reading strategies will help them in all classes, not just ELA. My goal is to help students become more confident, self-directed learners with the ability to pursue their own passions through access to texts of all kinds.
