I have been a classroom teacher, district reading specialist, and a building principal. I am currently working as a curriculum specialist at ESSDACK, providing staff development to over 50 school districts. I have a huge passion for helping educators change ineffective practices so that learning is engaging and meaningful. My most important job, however, is being a wife and mother of four children ages 14, 10, 4, and 3.

I recently joined the differentiation group and in reading your profile found that you have been a district reading specialist. While functioning at the school in Honduras as Curriculum Director, one of my goals has been to institute individual diagnostic assessment for the purpose of ensuring that our students achieve adequate yearly growth. We have succeeded in the areas of math and English reading comprehension. I am now looking for an assessment tool that would assess reading comprehension and writing skills in the Spanish language. Would you have any suggestions? I look forward to your advise.
