“When love and skill work together, expect a masterpiece.” John Ruskin

Since 2002, I have worked with teachers in many states – 42 so far, and Canada. Some are one-day; some are two-, three- or four-consecutive-day seminars; some cities/districts are annually; some are a few times each year, varying on the needs of the educators.

Topics include: Literacy Strategies, Early Childhood Literacy, Fluency, Vocabulary, Comprehension, Close Reading, Genre Study, Writer’s Workshop, Large Group and Small Group Instruction, Balanced Literacy, Response to Intervention/Literacy, Response to Intervention/Literacy Assessment, School-Based Professional Learning, Co-Teaching/Inclusive Practices, and Demonstration/Model Lessons.

You may see me in a city near you!  View 2016-2017 locations.
