I'm a lifelong reader and learner, now a writer/consultant specializing in English Language Learners. I have a BA in elementary education, and Masters degrees in Educational Supervision, Curriculum & Instruction, and Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (MATESOL). I was listed in Who's Who Among America's Teachers 2005-2006.
MANY years of public school experience as a classroom teacher, teacher trainer, and ESOL specialist in grades K-8 and adult education. I love helping good thinkers become better producers.
I've been fortunate to write and/or consult for Oxford University Press, Discovery Education, National Institutes of Health, and Maryland Public Television/Humanities/Department of Education via a grant from the Library of Congress. The research units for MPT won the 2018 National PBS Best Open Access Resource Award. See them at thinkport.org - special collections - teaching with primary sources.
My student books are for emerging readers of any age.
Start where you are, use what you have, do what you can.
Do your best.
