My name is Lisa Marie and I am an enthusiastic elementary teacher, writer, researcher, and author. My primary interest in in early education. I have been an educator for nineteen years and have experience teaching children from kindergarten to grade eight. In recent years I have worked as a literacy coach supporting teachers in the classroom. This has been very rewarding and has given me wonderful knowledge and insight into literacy practices.The more I pursue my interest for teaching reading and writing, the more I rise to the challenge of finding ways to give children the best literacy start possible.

Some of my ventures include; writing children’s books, developing educational resource materials, creating and delivering professional presentations to teachers and administrators, and participating in writing projects and learning teams. I am a member of the International Reading Association and enjoy investigating educational articles and current issues in literacy.

When I am not researching, writing, or teaching I am spending time with my husband and two active boys. Sports are a big interest in our household and I invest a great deal of time travelling to arena's for hockey games. Maybe there is a hub article there! If not, I am sure there will be something useful in a topic about raising teenage boys! I have a deep faith in Jesus Christ and try my best to live by the rule love thy neighbor. I am looking forward to writing many more hub pages. I want to share, with parents and educators, lots of useful information for teaching kids to read. I also want to tackle some topics outside the box and I hope to provide a little something interesting for everyone.


I am thrilled to share that the hub Digital Photo Books that Teach Literacy to Children was nominated for a HubNugget Award.
