I taught kindergarten for 16 years and was a district k-1 strategist for 2. I have a masters degree in curriculum and instruction from Dallas Baptist and a doctorate in early childhood studies with a minor in curriculum and instruction from the University of North Texas. I am currently working for Dallas ISD as a prek instructional specialist.
I attended a Debbie Diller Summer Institute a couple of summers ago. The conference was centered around literacy work stations. I used Debbie Diller's book, Literacy Work Stations: Making Centers Work, to set up my centers. I purchased her work station pocket chart and center cards through Really Good Stuff (http://www.reallygoodstuff.com/). You can visit Debbie Diller's web site to find more resources on literacy work stations and small group instruction.
