Hello! Thank you for visiting my blog. I welcome you to the conversation.
A little bit about me: I am a literacy professional striving to make reading and writing a lifestyle habit for all students while supporting classroom teachers in the amazing work they do.
I have worked for the past thirteen years in Piscataway, New Jersey. I started as a fourth grade classroom teacher, where I taught for seven years. For my last four years in the classroom, I was a literacy teacher (in our district’s departmentalized teaming model). Now I am the Middle Grades Literacy Content Area Specialist (literacy coach) for grades 6-8. I work with about 20 teachers at three different schools.
I graduated from Kean University with a BA in Elementary Education and a Concentration in English. I obtained my MA, online at Walden University, in Curriculum, Instruction, and Assessment (K-12). I also completed 15 credits at The College of New Jersey to obtain certification to teach English Language Learners, and another 15 credits at Rowan University for my Supervisor Certificate.
I currently live in High Bridge, New Jersey with my husband, Tony, and our daughter, Stella. We enjoy the outdoors- walking our dog, Ruby, and camping. I have always been an avid reader and with this blog, I’m starting my work as a writer.
