She was also an elementary teacher for 10 years. She is published in a number of journals and mentors both teacher candidates, as well as in-service teachers.


The text is well organized. The features such as profiles, figures, step-by-step boxes, and Teachers’ Notebook contribute excellent examples of topics and procedures and add to the richness of the text.
–Mary Clare Courtland, Lakehead University

I very much appreciate the efforts of the authors to produce a comprehensive text. They address emergent literacy, narrative and expository modes, examples and explanations, step by step processes, resources, application examples and assessment. There is a good balance of relevant, current theory and practice.
–Jean Tonski, Vancouver Island University
