My work in education has taken me to so many amazing places- teaching primary grades, working as a literacy coach and reading specialist, consulting with administrators, writing for teachers, and so much more! Currently, I am fortunate to spend my school days with an incredible group of fifth graders and a stellar teaching team while consulting on all matters of literacy education during my time away from the classroom.
I find joy in creating and providing professional development sessions and workshops for my fellow classroom teachers across the country. My first book, cowritten with Kari Yates, To Know and Nurture a Reader: Conferring with Confidence and Joy is available from Stenhouse Publishers. I’m currently working on my second book about the teaching of reading in the elementary classroom. More details about that are coming soon! Additionally, Kari and I also wrote a blog to support teachers.
Outside of the world of education, my time is spent Peloton-ing, cooking, running, nature-loving, concert-going (hopefully again soon), and generally enjoying life in the beautiful San Francisco Bay Area.
