Hello and Welcome! I'm Michael, the face behind Principal Teacher Co. It's hard to believe I've been an educator for 16 years now! I've taught all grades from K-8th, with a focus in ELA. Currently I am a K-5 Principal and a District Growing Readers Literacy Specialist. I'm also a former instructional coach, instructional technology specialist, and assistant principal. In addition, I'm an adjunct professor at Thomas University in the Reading Education and Curriculum and Leadership departments. I love all things education and my passion is supporting educators in the area of literacy! I am so fortunate to be able to extend my support to teachers locally within my district and globally via online coaching and consulting! Through Principal Teacher Co., I support teachers and schools/districts from all over in implementing research and evidence based best practices in literacy instruction that is reading science based.  I also support school leaders, literacy coaches and reading teachers in navigating and implementing a school-wide literacy model that is grounded in the Science of Reading.  

Please see my professional development offerings to learn more about how I can support you or your school in implementing reading science best practices! 

Let's connect! Let me know how I can support you and your district!
