Welcome to my blog! This space is where I reflect on my practice as a classroom Language Arts teacher; prior to Fall of 2016, I blogged in this space about my work as a librarian.
I am currently the Title I Writing teacher at Chestatee Academy in Gainesville, Georgia. From 2015-16 I was the media specialist at Chattahoochee High School in Johns Creek, Georgia. From July 2013-July 2015, I was a school librarian at Norcross High in the Gwinnett County Public School District. Prior to coming to Norcross, I was the Learning Strategist for the Cleveland Public Library in Cleveland, Ohio. Before moving to Cleveland, Ohio in 2013, I devoted 20 years of service to the Cherokee County School District as an English teacher, technology specialist, and school librarian.
I have twenty five years of experience in public education, and I am passionate about creating meaningful learning experiences for learners of all ages. My interests include literacy learning experiences, participatory learning and culture, ethnographic studies, and writing literacies. I’m a 2011 Library Journal Mover and Shaker who loves dogs, shopping, running, music, and poetry. In addition to blogging here, I have previously blogged for DMLcentral.
