About the Author(s)

Carol Koechlin and Sandi Zwaan are award-winning authors and educators who have dedicated their careers to helping students become better readers, writers and researchers. They are popular conference presenters and staff development instructors.

Sandi can't remember why she became a teacher, but she thinks it was "just what I was born to do. I love the excitement of realizing a student actually 'got it' and learned a new skill that will make a difference for him in life as well as in school."
