Currently:  I am an independent Literacy Consultant.   My comments are my own.  I love to read and dearly love my ereaders  . . . all of them because my books are NOT stacking up everywhere!  High school football and wrestling are my two favorite sports and I am often found at music events as well! My new loves of my life are my grandsons.

Life-long Learner:  In my MANY years in education, I have had one summer where I did not take classes myself.  That was the summer that my husband returned from overseas service for Desert Storm when our son was a year old.  Every other summer, I have taught classes and taken classes.  It is very important, to me, to model being a life-long learner. Because of my belief system it is also important that I model writing, and therefore, this blog is a tool to continue to enhance and publicly share my writing skills (and in March of 2014 – March of 2022 this meant daily blogging for the Slice of Life Challenge with Two Writing Teachers and weekly blogging the remainder of each year).

Former Roles:  Teacher (classroom 4th grade, special education K-12, college), elementary principal, K-12 curriculum development, and K-12 professional development coordinator as well as adjunct graduate instructor for over 20 years and AEA Literacy Consultant for 19 years

Recently, I have been exploring the use of technology to enhance learning.  It is an interesting journey!

What’s your passion?  How would I know?

    Hi, I love your Shared Reading Weekly Planning Template. Are you willing to share all 5 days? My district is new to the RUOS and the teachers are asking for a “cheat sheet” for shared reading. Some newer teachers also want to know other choices for shared reading after the first week. I have given them ideas but not specific titles. Did you provide your staff with that as well?
    Thanks in advance. I’m excited to check out more of your blog!
