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).

  1. I’m embracing much today, and with delight. A new month begins. All the little white boxes of the March calendar hang on the wall in front of me. Each one full of spring’s potential.

    A new challenge begins with this Slice of Life writing. I’m looking forward to this because it is a challenge and I will be pushed to write. I want to experience what my students must feel when the expectation to write sits in front of them.

    A new week begins tomorrow and it is a full five day week. No holidays or interruptions. What learning and growth will we accomplish in our little classroom community?

    Let’s begin.


  2. I eagerly embrace the opportunity offered by Stacey and Ruth in their Slice of Life Writng Challenge. I look forward to sharing and discovering as I undertake this writing journey through the month of March…
    And away we go!
