4th Grade Teacher + Book Enthusiast + Writer + Mental Health Advocate
Weekly team time and coaching meetings with our school’s literacy specialist keep my wheels turning. All the questions all the time: What language did you use? What scaffolds did they need? What tools can we create?
What’s better than readers leaning in with wide eyes during read aloud, writers whispering excitedly to their partner about what they just tried, or mathematicians acknowledging “this is hard” then embracing the challenge?
New Kid Lit
I’m a sucker for picture book biographies and middle grade realistic fiction. In an effort to celebrate new children’s literature, I contribute to a collaborative book blog, Teachers Books Readers.
