• Welcome!
    I’m often asked the question, “How do you do it ALL?” The question I’m rarely asked is, “Why?”
    “Why do you choose to partner with teachers in their classrooms while writing books, providing professional learning experiences, and having a life?”
    I do it ALL because, together, the range of experiences strengthens my craft. When I’m in the company of children and teachers they always make me think, renew my energy, and reinforce my commitment to bringing joy and passion to our demanding profession.
  • Thanks for your commitment to helping children grow and learn!

    My hope is that you will find something here to spark an idea, make you ponder or question, prompt a conversation with a colleague, and inspire you to run back to your classroom to share with your students!
