Parents:
Parents play a critical role in their children's learning right from birth. Parent workshops will provide simple, effective ways to engage both preschool and elementary-age children in the learning process - always with an emphasis on fun!

        Creating a Literacy-Rich Environment in Your Home - 90 minute session
       

Students:
​I am available during the 2017-2018 school year to lead writing residencies with elementary age students. By modelling the power of freewriting and using mentor texts for inspiration, I will assist both teachers and students with the writing process. I want students to enjoy putting pencil to paper and to improve their skills while doing it.

        Grade 1 and 2 - 40 minutes per classroom
        Grades 3, 4, 5 and 6 - 45 minutes per classroom

Residencies are most effective when accompanied by a teacher workshop.
