What if instructional coaching was easy?


Hi! I’m Gail Fazio -teacher, reading specialist & instructional coach who is passionate about helping parents, teachers and instructional coaches provide the best literacy & school experiences for their students. Whether you’re a parent worried about your child, a teacher struggling to meet the needs of every reader or a coach struggling to meet the needs of every teacher, I can help you with the tips & tricks I’ve discovered over my 35 years in education.


I was where you are now- confused about the 1st steps to begin teaching or coaching successfully.

But I had no one to turn to for answers.

That’s why I created DOG WITH A BONE!


My passion is helping parents & teachers! I know how important your job is and how challenging it can be. Even if you’re an experienced coach or teacher, I have super helpful resources and content to save you time & tears (and to stop you from binging on chocolate!). Perhaps you’re new to teaching and don’t know where to start? I have ideas to help you jump in and begin building the classroom of your dreams.

I can help you achieve all of that! ‘Cause I’m like a DOG WITH A BONE when it comes to working with teachers! Once you become part of my pack, you’ll receive tons of support and treats you don’t know how you did without! (See what I did there? Woof!)
