Kimberly Tyson, or Dr. Kimberly as she is known by many, has been an educator and literacy consultant for many years. She has a great deal of experience as a classroom teacher, college administrator and instructor, and literacy consultant in classrooms ranging from preschool to the graduate level.
She regularly contributes literacy insights at Dr. Kimberly’s Literacy Blog and has collaborated in writing classroom curriculum and language arts sections, and chaired the Elementary Reading National Evaluation Preparation Committee for Pearson Education. And, she’ll soon have a vocabulary book published with Solution Tree.
Dr. Kimberly’s approach to literacy is research-based, practical, and is expertly designed to move literacy instruction and achievement forward. She has actively contributed to projects with the Indiana Department of Education, the Central Indiana Education Service Center, and other educational service centers in Indiana and nationally.
Her new book with Angela Peery, Blended Vocabulary: Harnessing the Power of Digital Tools and Effective Instruction, focuses on effective vocabulary practices in a blended environment. It will be published by Solution Tree in the summer of 2016. You can read more about it Blended Vocabulary.
If you want to get in Kimberly’s good favor, she’s partial to strong coffee and chocolate (in that order). She volunteers in her community and cheers for the Phillies (a transplant from the east coast). She loves gardening, reading, bike riding, art galleries, live theater, and hanging out with her children.
