Last Friday I returned home from six weeks away. I went on vacation for a week and then spent five more in the NY Area with family and friends. I loved every minute of being away, catching up with my loved ones, but it feels good to be home.
One of the biggest things I missed was my desk. It’s the messiest place in our apartment, but there’s something comforting about it. Everything is right there, at my finger tips. Plus, my desk, which I’ve had since 2003, is super-huge and has space for everything (except I have to move my keyboard when I want to write on the desk blotter).

I am a literacy consultant who has spent the past dozen years working with teachers to improve the teaching of writing in their classrooms. While I work with teachers and students in grades 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).
