It's TEACHER TALK'S Featured Author
As an English teacher whose students could not read, I went back to school to become a reading specialist. Three years in high school, ten years in middle school, and seventeen years in elementary schools were spent in a district with very high poverty. Now that I am retired and have had time to reflect, I feel that it was, other than family, the most rewarding experience of my life.
At the Reading Spotlight, I create enjoyable, research-based, practice materials for reading and writing improvement. One of my favorite resources is my free Self-Help Tests that encourage students to take some responsibility for their own learning (mindfulness!) and provide practical suggestions for ways to improve. This is one of them:
Another favorite is a set of Audience
Participation Plays that improve listening skills. Kids REALLY enjoy these plays
with simple, group parts and no-prep for teachers. They improve student listening
abilities, too! You can find one below.

TBOTEMC’s Teacher Talk and its members have been very helpful and encouraging, starting from the top with Vicky. I have spent all of my time and energy helping kids, and our district had very little money for training. I am mostly self-taught in computing, with large gaps, and EVERY single person has been greatly supportive.
