Thanks for joining me here at Inking Compelling Stories. You’ll find posts about the picture books I admire, use as mentor texts, and value in a variety of ways.
I hold two Masters of Art degrees; one Special Education and another in Educational Leadership. My career in education includes working with students and educators, teaching 2nd, 3rd, and 5th grade students, and serving as a school principal. My service to the Wisconsin State Reading Association include WSRA Update Editor, Young Authors Festival chair, WSRA President, WSRA 2012 Conference Chair, and WSRA Web Editor, and most recently as the WSRA Administrative Assistant. I currently serve as the WSRA Historian.
