I have been teaching for over a decade now in high school, middle school, and elementary grades.
Bottom up approach for literacy, and then I want students to take off with discovery based learning and quality literature as the basis for every lesson!
2011 Educator500 Recipient. ETS Principles of Learning and Teaching Award West Chester University of Pennsylvania Outstanding Senior Teacher Education Award
My certifications include middle grades English and Social Studies, Elementary and Special Education, minors in Literacy and Music, and graduate work towards a degree and certification as a Reading Specialist.
I'm a crazy book lady, affectionately called "Human Dictionary" by colleagues and students alike, an adoptive and biological mother, a freelance published author, and a lifelong learner! I delight in preparing novel studies, literature-based games, and literacy activities. I am that education nerd you've been hearing about, and I can't wait to help provide creative, fun materials for your classrooms.
