Practical support from a former classroom teacher who knows the importance 
of receiving professional development you can put into practice the very next day.

I provide professional development on a wide range of balanced literacy topics. My areas of expertise include:
  • Conferring and small group work
  • Genre studies (i.e., argument, informational, narrative, and poetry writing)
  • Interactive read aloud
  • Launching and sustaining writing workshop
  • Mentor texts (i.e., using children's literature to teach craft)
  • Online and social media for teachers of writing and young writers
  • Teachers as writers
  • Vocabulary integration
  • Writer's notebooks

Examples of Professional Development Services:
  • Half- or full-day workshops (school or district-wide) on a topic.
  • Multi-day coaching around a topic (e.g., conferring) for part or an entire school year.
  • Curriculum planning with individual teachers or grade level teams.
  • One-to-one meetings or coaching sessions with teachers.
  • Keynote speeches.
  • Virtual PD (e.g., Skype, Google Hangout).
