Teaching teachers how-to teaching reading is my passion. Learning best reading methods was such a revelatory process for me. Research on learning how to read not only changed my way of teaching, but more importantly changed the success I was having with students, all students, but especially struggling readers.  It became my mission to help all teachers learn too what I now knew, that more and more children could succeed at reading.

I teach Literacy Methods Course I and II, and I am an edTPA Mentor. 

My research interests have changed over the years, but currently I am doing research with reading motivation and am the director of Read-A-Difference, a small group of scholars helping one grade-level team of teachers at a time to infuse reading motivational principles into their reading instruction.
