I design learning opportunities on a wide range of topics grounded in workshop and authentic reading and writing experiences for teachers and students of all ages. Workshops range from one hour to multiple-day institutes and can include learning labs within classrooms. Every experience is customized to meet the needs of the learners, balancing on the edge of next practices while staying true to best practices in literacy instruction.
Stay tuned for more topics and more information about the ones you see below:
