I help ELA teachers make changes in their teaching practices that yield big results. Educators from around the world have not only learned the importance of connecting reading and writing, but also how it benefits their instruction and their students' learning. You'll learn how to make "it all fit" into your literacy block while also improving your students writing and thinking. Join me as we discuss literacy, authentic learning, and developing critical thinkers and writers.

"I didn't even know there was such a thing as teachers on YouTube until about a year and a half ago. I was teaching 4th at the time and came across your channel. It was just what I needed! Thank you for validating me and inspiring me!"

"I am learning so much with you about graphic organizer[s] and teaching my students to deeply dig in the story. This is my second year teaching so thank you so much ... I also have to give thanks for showing how to use mentor sentences. After I saw your video, I am doing [this] for the first time and my kids love it. Thanks!
