Hello, and welcome to Reading and Writing Haven, a place I hope you find inspiration, community, and encouragement to keep doing the important work you’ve been gifted to do.

My blog is where I reflect and share thoughts and research about educational issues that impact teachers, parents, and students on a daily basis. Writing helps me to process my thoughts, refine my teaching, and pinpoint areas for self improvement. I truly am always learning, and I love doing it alongside educators all over the globe.

I’m a junior high instructional coach, former middle and high school English teacher with eleven years experience, wife to a firefighter, mother of three small children, and curriculum designer. You can find my resources in my TpT shop.

I use my degrees in English, Curriculum & Instruction, and Reading as well as my Reading Specialist certification to ponder today’s educational issues while developing resources to support teachers, students, and parents.

Thanks for visiting! Grab a cup of coffee or tea, and start reading. Don’t see what you want to read? Send me a message. I’d love to write for you!
