I am the author of three professional books for school librarians, classroom teachers, and literacy coaches. The focus of the books is using coteaching approaches to teach reading comprehension strategies. The books include standards-based sample lesson plans that highlight ways to lower the student-teacher ratio at the point of instruction. The lessons also integrate research-based instructional strategies. Coteaching Reading Comprehension Strategies in Elementary School Libraries: Maximizing Your Impact (2013), which is a revision of Collaborative Strategies for Teaching Reading Comprehension: Maximizing Your Impact (2007), and Coteaching Reading Comprehension Strategies in Secondary School Libraries: Maximizing Your Impact (2012).

I am currently writing Building a Culture of Collaboration: School Librarian Leadership and Advocacy (ALA Editions 2017).

I am also a published children's book author. My newest picture book Ready and Waiting for You (Eerdmans Books for Young Readers, 2013) is a welcome to school book for kindergarteners and primary-age children who are starting in a new school. My second book (written for families), Read to Me/Vamos a leer, is available in English, Spanish, bilingual Spanish-English, and Vietnamese in hardcover and board book formats from Star Bright Books (January 2004). My first children's picture book, Sing Down the Rain (Kiva Publishing, 1997), is currently out of print; I am searching for a new publishing home for this book.

Author and Storyteller School Visits

Desert Duets is the companion Web site for my book of two-voice poems: Desert Duets: Sonoran Desert Poems for Two Voices. This book is still serching for a publisher. I authored and illustrated the Sabino Canyon: The Web of Life Web Site and facilitated the work of preservice educators and graduate students on the Southwest Children's Literature Web Site.

I maintain a poetry page with samples of my own poetry and poems students have written. It also includes poetry resources for educators.

I conduct research on issues related to classroom-library collaboration for instruction. My curriculum vitae and presentations wiki archive lists my professional publications and presentations.

As an educator, poet, and storyteller - I am always on the trail of new stories...
