A number of principles I’ve developed and honed over the years govern my approach to teaching reading.  I believe in:

  • Giving kids time to practice reading
  • Being a Good Reading Role Model
  • Incorporating technology into lessons
  • Using research-based strategies
  • Using assessment results as a guide when creating lessons
  • Working collaboratively with other professionals
  • Knowing my students well
  • Motivating my students and giving them a purpose to their learning
  • Providing a safe, positive learning environment
  • Giving students choices
