I am passionate about children's literature and the teaching of reading comprehension across the curriculum.
I love dialogic approaches and teaching strategies that support higher order thinking, student-generated questioning deep comprehension and critical literacies. I have taught in primary, early childhood, adult literacy, numeracy, ESL and pre-service teacher education at University.
