As a literacy consultant and national presenter, I offer firsthand knowledge of public and independent schools complemented by cutting-edge pedagogical practice. Primarily, I design and model curriculum that improves reading comprehension and elevates writing skills in language arts and content-area subjects.

My high-energy approach to coaching is individualized, ongoing and cost effective. I demonstrate research-based strategies tailored specifically to the needs of individual teachers in the context of their classroom. Lucy Calkins, Jennifer Serravallo and Richard Allington are just some of the experts whose work is at the heart of my practice. Although my knowledge of the Reading and Writing Workshop runs deep, my real strength lies in my ability to ignite the enthusiasm of teachers as I coach them into mastering the key components that define best practice. Once teachers begin to deliver outcome-based strategy lessons followed by effective small group instruction and student conferences the volume and quality of student work goes up.

My model includes a preliminary on-site visit, multi-day teacher labs and ongoing follow up. Remote coaching into grade-level meetings or inservice training is also an option. With respect to cost, I strive to make every dollar count by negotiating a fee with the professional development budget of each school in mind. I invite you to take some time to browse my website and consider the ways in which a differentiated approach to professional development could expand the pedagogical repertoire of teachers and elevate the quality of student outcomes at your school.
