Hello, my name is Kathleen Wainwright and I am a proud teacher in the School District of Philadelphia. I currently teach third grade; however with over 17 years of teaching experience- I’ve taught just about every grade from K-6. Third and fourth grades have found a special place in my heart— they are the two most important primary grades in my opinion (I can tell more about that in a future blog post). They are also my two most favorite grades to teach! I am a Reading Specialist and a National Board Certified Teacher…. teaching reading literacy is my calling and my passion. Not only do I teach I also create educational resources that can be used for literacy instruction- my specialty is differentiated instruction. I truly enjoy sharing tips and teaching resources on my blog often- it is where I can I share my insight and my resources with teachers, parents, and homeschoolers. My hope is that visitors find my blog to be a virtual library full of helpful and meaningful tools that can be used in their classrooms. In addition to teaching, I am an author of two children’s books- Summer in the City and Ziggie Tales: Ziggie’s Big Adventure. I am currently in the process of finishing my third book, the second chapter book in the Ziggie Tales series, Ziggie Tales: Layla’s Lemonade Stand. Since you’ve stopped by, look around and check out my blog and resources for differentiating instruction!
