I was honored to have been part of the Fiction Picture Book Judging Committee for the 2007 Cybils Awards along with Mitali, Barb, Nikki, and Gail, which was led by Jules. As I was browsing for picture books when I was at Brookline Booksmith yesterday, I realized that I hadn’t posted a link to the award winners’ announcement. Therefore, just click here to find out which books won the 2007 Cybils!
I am a literacy consultant who has spent over a decade working with teachers to improve the teaching of writing in their classrooms. While I work with teachers and students in grade K-6, I'm a former fourth and fifth-grade teacher so I have a passion for working with upper elementary students.
I'm the author of Craft Moves (Stenhouse Publishers, 2016) and the co-author of Jump Into Writing (Zaner-Bloser, 2021), Welcome to Writing Workshop (Stenhouse Publishers, 2019), and Day By Day (Stenhouse, 2010).
