Passion Small BW Photo campfire from Ashley

Welcome to ReadingTeacherWrites.org. This is my professional site where I share information about literacy learning, my own research-based reflections, and lessons I’ve learned while teaching. Now that I am a school librarian, I will post much more on titles and authors for classrooms and schools.

You can also use this page to contact me regarding your reading and writing classroom needs. “Collaboration is key.” I would love to collaborate with you on your next literacy-based project or professional development event.

Lucy Calkins, the Founding Director of the Teachers College Reading and Writing Project, said, “Passion is powerful.” I am passionate about teaching and learning; I want to share my passion with you.

I am currently working on:

  • “Picture Books are Powerful” in the Middle School Classroom
  • Research on Independent Reading
  • “SOLO” Launch Team for Solo, by Kwame Alexander and Mary Rand Hess (until August 1, 2017)
