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 writing and collaborating with colleagues from across the country on all matters of literacy education in my time away from school. I also facilitate book clubs for kids (grades 3-6) and caregivers.
My second book for teachers, Answers to Your Biggest Questions About Teaching Elementary Reading is available from Corwin Press. My first book, cowritten with Kari Yates, To Know and Nurture a Reader: Conferring with Confidence and Joy is available from Stenhouse Publishers.
Outside of the world of education, my time is spent Peloton-ing, cooking, running, nature-loving, concert-going, and generally enjoying life in the beautiful San Francisco Bay Area.
