"Writing for is an exciting and rewarding process. I'm able to reflect on current research about effective teaching, student learning, and assessment and then create lessons that can be used by teachers in classrooms anywhere in the world! It is my hope that these lessons will allow more teachers to reflect on their current practice and to find meaningful and relevant ways to engage students of all ages in enjoyable literacy experiences."
