Welcome to

"Creating a Culture of Writers"!

Teaching writing is simply . . . challenging.

There is no other way to state it. Each student has his/her strengths, interests, and specific needs. As a result, oftentimes, teachers do not know where to begin providing instruction. You may be asking yourself,

"How do I meet the needs of all my learners when the range is so vast?"

"How do I make learning meaningful and personalize instruction for each student?"

You have come to the right place!

As a result of my educator training, experiences, and mentoring work, I am able to bridge scientific research, instructional craft, and best practices to provide a pathway to strengthen your instructional skills and strategies. While you travel along this journey, you will discover your passion for writing, strategies to personalize learning, and methods to ignite the spark in every learner to become a writer.

Are you ready to get started?

I am excited to begin this journey with YOU!
