Meet Deedee Wills!

Deedee created Kindergarten CCSS & NEW GUIDED READING Assessments in ESGI to provide an easy and efficient way to track and report student progress, create small groups and develop effective intervention strategies using real-time item analyses.  She taught four years in second grade before she was asked to help launch their Balance Literacy adoption in her district. She served as a Literacy Coach for two years but missed having her own class. So when a kindergarten position opened up, Deedee begged and pleaded... and Mrs. Wills Kindergarten was created. Today, Deedee supports teachers through teacher best practices.  She is a national speaker and staff developer.
