I love connecting with other educators with a fire in their belly looking to make their way or have been around the block, of the educational landscape.
There is no containing the fire that simply shoots out (sometimes needing an extinguisher or a person who can at minimum handle the heat or the debate!)
I’ve been teaching long enough to have been thrown up on (ew), sworn at (f-u), cried while drinking wine after a long day (insert wine glass emoji), I have lived “in the trenches” (sweat dripping off brow), I’ve been fed-up with administration (eye roll), I’ve spoken up or back to principals (are you talkin’ to me?), helped my colleagues (love), nurtured colleagues (more love), and taught as well as modeled hundreds of lessons (I love the spotlight!).
I’ve taught students as young as 5 (aw cuties) and as old as raging hormonal high schoolers (watch out), aaaannnndddd adult learners (they force me to be better)!
Literacy and English language learners are my faves!
I am a trained in Reading Recovery teacher (the best reading/writing early education intervention ever and the foundation for everything Guided Reading and Fountas and Pinnell created). Some call me a Reading Specialist, some, a Literacy Coach, some, an energized life-long learner and teacher.
I’m a mentor to anyone wanting to improve their craft of literacy instruction or work with ELLs – click here, let us get started!
