Reading specialist/enthusiast K-12 with Masters degree in Literacy and Curriculum Development. BR Reading Specialist Certification.
I believe in research based practice as well as authentic/engaging learning. I believe in classrooms where students feel loved and fall in love with learning. I care about kids - and don’t give up on them. I work to develop products that foster a love for literacy and that make learning engaging/approachable. I want students to be exposed not to contrived texts and worksheets, but to high quality literature and literacy work that provides a foundation for increased reading and writing skills, and also that inspire good.

K-12 reading specialist, wife, and mom of 3. I LOVE all things literacy, and spending "free" time with my family, friends, and church. I like things that are neat, organized, and pretty...and get excited about good coffee, pretty planners, and beautiful book covers. I believe that becoming lifelong learners and building self confidence and motivation in literacy will create a better future for kids. And I want to be a part of that work by providing products to educators and families that can be used to make a great impact in the lives of students. I'd like to be a part of changing the world. With books. :) Contact me anytime with questions at email@example.com. Happy Teaching! :) Become a TPT Follower.
