Supporting Teachers to grow successful readers and writers
Welcome to The Literacy Garden!
I am so happy that you have found my blog. During the day, I teach 2nd graders and at night I write teacher resources for my class as well as Teachers Pay Teachers. It’s hard to believe I have spent over 28 years in the classroom with primary students! It is so rewarding to share this journey with you through my blog.
I am happily married to a wonderful man who supports all my endeavors. My loving family and playful fur baby named Charley keep my home filled with joy and adventures.

About the Literacy Garden
When I started teaching, I quickly realized that student teaching didn't prepare me for the real challenges of being alone in a classroom full of young children. The learning curve was steep and time was limited.
That is why I created the Literacy Garden. My hope is this will be a place for inspiration, mentoring, and connecting.
