About

Hello!  Thank you for visiting my blog.  I welcome you to the conversation.

Tony and Lindsay-113A little bit about me: I am a literacy professional striving to make reading and writing a lifestyle habit for all students, while supporting classroom teachers in the amazing work they do.

I have worked the past nine years in Piscataway, New Jersey.  I started as a fourth grade classroom teacher, where I taught for seven years.  For my last four years in the classroom, I was a literacy teacher (in our district’s departmentalized teaming model).   Now I am the Middle Grades Literacy Content Area Specialist (literacy coach) for grades 4-8.  I service about 60 teachers at nine schools.

I graduated from Kean University with a BA in Elementary Education and a Concentration in English.  I also completed 15 credit at The College of New Jersey to obtain certification to teach English Language Learners.  Currently, I am working toward my MA in Curriculum, Instruction, and Assessment (K-12).

I currently live in High Bridge, New Jersey with my husband, Tony (we got married in July 2015!).  We enjoy the outdoors- walking our dog, Ruby, and camping.  I have always been an avid reader and with this blog I’m starting my work as a writer.
