"I believe each of my students must craft an individual reading life of challenge, whim, curiosity, and hunger. I believe in the collecting, noticing, living work of designing lessons to empower writers. I believe teachers provide vision for students; we live a belief in their success every day we teach."



Teacher, Author, Advocate

"My vision is to empower readers, writers, and teachers. Every classroom. Every year."
