I have been teaching in literacy for 23 years, with background in teaching world languages and study of literature. I have research and teaching experience in children’s literature, including national and international publications and presentations. I have similar experience in teaching and publishing on how to help students who struggle long term to make progress with reading and writing, including articles, a nationally used textbook, and professional books.
