Work With Me

Over the last fifteen years, I’ve worked with nearly one-hundred school districts and organizations to develop high quality curricula that serves K-12 readers and writers. I’ve served as an instructional coach, led district-wide shifts to standards based grading and reporting, and facilitated assessment design and data analysis work that influences performance improvement. I’ve also served as a keynote speaker for many events, hosted single-day workshops, and led visioning and strategic planning sessions.

I design experiences that happen face to face, in the company of teachers inside of your schools and their classrooms. I also have significant experience designing and implementing distance, blended, and hybrid learning experiences. I customize every initiative, timeline, and the tools that I use to meet the needs of the people that I serve. As you consider the options below, know that any of them can be facilitated in whatever way makes sense for you. 

You will find a list of my past clients here, and testimonials can be found here.          References are also furnished upon request.


Professional Learning Facilitation:

12I would love to support the growth of literacy in your school as you work to implement promising instructional practices, design curriculum, improve assessment, or shift toward standards-based grading.  These practices complement one another, and the work of one often illuminates tensions and needs inside the other. I find that it’s important for literacy consultants to have deep expertise in each of these areas, in order to create coherent and productive professional learning experiences that improve performance.

Writing Studio Design

I also enjoy designing inventive spaces for young writers and the teachers who support them. Are you ready to integrate design thinking, making, and writing in general education classes or already established makerspaces? I can help you build the right environment, design your program, and cultivate the best mindset, values, and habits. I can even support the launch of your new space by teaching, coaching, or training staff. I founded a writing studio of my own in 2008, and it’s still thriving today. I’ve also built studios in store fronts like the one you see here, in rented and temporary spaces, and inside of schools, classrooms, and community centers.

    Hi Angela,

    I was at 3 of your sessions yesterday in Grande Prairie, AB. I can’t get to the spot where I put in the code you gave us. I don’t know what I am doing wrong, but I would like access to the materials that you provided for us.
