Teaching young scholars all over the USA and Canada since 2000. I am currently working to build excellence in education in New Orleans. As Ia Close Reading Curriculum Developer, several of my units have been given an Exemplar rating by Achieve.org.
My teaching style is rigorous and aligned to common core standards. I adore the process of 'digging' into complex texts with students by using close reading strategies. I am a believer in the learning potential of all students.
