I have developed curriculum maps and literacy units for grades K through 5, all aligned to the Common Core. As a former ESL and dual language teacher, I specialize in adapting curricular objectives to the needs of second language learners. My units are always thematic and project-based. Most of my written work is available in English and French. I have also created Common Core-aligned math problem sets in French.
