Teachers are life-long learners. We all know this, but how difficult is it to keep up? Very! Who has the time? Who has the money to pay hundreds of dollars out of their meager teacher salary?


Just one high quality conference can cost up to $3,000!


Way too many schools do not pay for their teachers to keep up-to-date with the latest information, research, assessments, trends, & more. Or they do provide PD, but you have no say in what you’re learning about!


You’re in the classroom so your time is so very limited. You do not have time to go to the bathroom, much less waste hours on finding the just-right resource you need to reach those struggling readers. Too many resources sold out there are just a way to get you to buy a program. How do you decide which of the new teacher resources are the ones to read? Which have proven themselves over the course of time? Just how do you implement what you’ve learned?


That’s why Dog with a Bone is creating online courses, resources, & blog posts just for you!


My focus is literacy, instructional coaching and building a school culture that raises test scores, but I’ll also offer lots of resources that every teacher just plain need!

Some of the topics I offer are:
