Hi! Thanks for dropping in! I love what I do, and am so excited to share my products with you! I have been teaching for 14 years, all in grades 1-5. This year, I've had the unique opportunity to teach a section of 7th grade Reading Comprehension and English. I was a bit unsure when I began, but absolutely love it now. Let's see, I have my Master's degree in Elementary Education with a focus in reading, as well as my National Boards Certification in Middle Childhood Generalist. I'm a teacher consultant with the National Writing Project. My products all represent my perspective of education: engaging, rigorous and fun!
