I’m a mother of two boys, ages 4 and 7. I’m a teacher of teachers. I’m a reader. I’m a writer. I’m a blogger for The Classroom Bookshelf. I am the author of Story: Still the Heart of Literacy Learning and co-author of Literacy Leadership in Changing Schools.

I’m writing to document what I notice and think about my own children and the children I’m lucky to learn alongside. Thanks, Two Writing Teachers, for giving me the nudge I needed.
