I help students see the value in the books they read, the writing they do and the English homework they're assigned.

I am a substitute teacher, and I also worked at a top early childhood education center for three years. Since I'm in a variety of classrooms during the week, I gather the best of what teachers and paraprofessionals are doing to help children learn.
