For Teachers

Teaching is the most important job in the world. I am honored to present to teachers worldwide at local, state, national and international conferences as well as delivering customized professional development. Primarily, I base my talks on my teacher professional books (see book page).  My topics center around writing, vocabulary instructions, comprehension, and yes, poetry as a vehicle for learning as well as an art product.

I often present with my co-author and partner in rhyme, Michael Salinger.  For pictures and more information about our philosophy and books, visit us at
