Ms. Carol has been a voracious reader since childhood. Her lifelong passion is to cultivate curiosity in children, and to inspire a lifelong love of learning, especially the reading and enjoyment of beautiful literature! 

It is not my style to glorify the scary or darker aspects of any story. I prefer to focus on, and to keep our class discussions focused on the positive life lessons. We do, however, briefly and tactfully touch on the darker topics, such as deaths of characters, and unkindness in this story.  I make every attempt to model and teach critical thinking, regardless of what book we are reading.

Ms. Carol has a PhD in pedagogy and history, with a Master’s in Cultural Studies. One of my  core values is to teach children to think critically, and to apply that to everything they read.

Students will need a copy of the book Heidi by Johanna Spyri. The assigned chapters must be read or listened to BEFORE class. Students can use their own books, library books, ebooks, or even listen to the audio books. If listening to the audiobooks, it is highly recommended that student reads independently to develop their own reading comprehension and competency.
