Hello, and welcome to my blog! I am Kimberly Ballou, an actress, educator, and author of When Daronte’s Father Went to Prison. One of my most strongly-held beliefs is that EVERY child can learn, and my mission is to create lifelong readers.
Here you will find strategies for the difficult-to-reach students, as well as methods for engaging ALL learners in the core content. You will be able to obtain practical lesson plans for teaching the disinterested student, the ADD and ADHD child, and the non-readers in your classroom. Teachers also will discover new ways to “perk up” material that students may find boring. I have been an actress for decades and have used my training effectively in many classrooms. So enjoy learning to use theater techniques across the core curriculum! I hope you find this blog a source of valuable information, and come back often.
