About This Blog

About the author:

I am a literacy consultant through the Teachers College Reading and Writing Project based at Columbia University. I teach workshops and courses for teachers and administrators in K-5 schools across the country, to help educators learn how to teach balanced literacy, which includes reading workshop, writing workshop, interactive read aloud, and word study. I'm also a doctoral candidate, developing assessment tools for reading comprehension for beginning readers.

More importantly, I am a mom!
