A Uniquely Qualified Seminar Leader

Cheryl Sweeney is an excellent classroom teacher and an excellent presenter. Cheryl puts her 25+ years of teaching experience to good use when she trains teachers and presents workshops at local, state and national levels. Because Cheryl has been in the classroom, she knows that teachers want practical ideas that really work! She has presented her seminars throughout the United States and Canada and has been the keynote speaker at several national reading conferences. Cheryl loves developing and presenting seminars in the area of language arts and explicit skills instruction, and has been enthusiastically working with LITERACY CENTERS for several years. She received her Master of Science in Education with an emphasis on literacy instruction, and is excited to share her ideas about LITERACY CENTERS in the hope that they will help every student maximize his/her ability to learn while freeing teachers to work with small groups. Her new resource handbook, USING LITERACY CENTERS to Strengthen Your Reading and Writing Instruction (Grades 1-3), will be given to each participant attending the seminar. Cheryl’s expertise, practicality and enthusiasm keep her workshops fast-moving and enjoyable. You’ll return to your first, second or third grade classroom with ready-made activities and new teaching strategies to allow you to work smarter, not harder.
