I’m the “LitCoachLady”- a K-8 literacy coach in multiple schools in Maine. I’ve been an educator for 29 years as a classroom teacher, Reading Recovery Teacher, and literacy specialist. I’m also the author of Close Writing: Developing Purposeful Writers in Grades 2-6 with Stenhouse 2016. My best “job” is being mom to two adored teens and wife to the love of my life. I have a passion for literacy that I love to blog about!
