hi! I’m keri

I have been teaching over 16 years. I’ve taught kindergarten and first grade and now I’m an interventionist at a K-2 school in Alabama. I’m passionate about bringing hands-on activities to primary students without it taking a ton of time. I love coaching and presenting to primary teachers online and in person. Using tech in the classroom is one of my favorite things. As a lifelong learner, I love finding new strategies and ideas to implement in the classroom.

Let’s work together!

Over the last ten years, I have had the opportunity to work with thousands of teachers across the country. My passion as a classroom teacher, interventionist, national presenter, and mentor has led me to want to help educators worldwide.

As a lifelong learner, I believe that every teacher is also on a lifelong journey of learning new ideas, strategies, and best practices for their classroom and school. My sessions all have just that. I would love to share my knowledge with you and other teachers in your area. My goal is to provide teachers with ideas (and resources) they can take back into their classroom to use the very NEXT day.

Professional development that i offer… plus more!

In ‘Revitalizing Small Groups and Centers with Science of Reading,’ I draw upon my extensive training in LETRS and Phonics First, coupled with years of hands-on experience teaching based on Science of Reading best practices. This session is a dynamic exploration of practical strategies and tools that transform small group instruction and learning centers, fostering literacy growth and engagement among young learners. Educators leave empowered with actionable insights and personalized approaches, ready to create independent readers and thinkers in their classrooms.

Attendees of ‘Nonsense to Number Sense’ rave about its ability to simplify and revolutionize their math instruction through easy-to-implement everyday routines. This session, which integrates the power of counting collections, has been instrumental in shifting students’ perspectives on math, making it more accessible and engaging. Teachers leave inspired with practical strategies that transform their math blocks, fostering a deeper understanding of numeracy concepts and promoting a positive mindset towards mathematics in their classrooms.

Our professional development sessions stand out for their interactive nature, blending research-based insights with practical classroom applications. Whether exploring the power of counting collections or uncovering classroom hacks to save time, educators benefit from personalized coaching, peer collaboration, and ongoing support, ensuring sustainable growth and impact in their teaching practices.
