Hi whimsical word lovers! My name is Liz Siracusa and I am an educator currently residing in Vermont. My background is in literacy and technology integration. I spent 7 years teaching 4th and 5th grade, now I am a Senior Instructional Coach and Digital Communications Specialist for LightSail Education.

LightSail is an award winning Educational Technology Company that developed a personalized literacy platform for students K-12. We combine engaging books, in-text assessments and instant actionable data. I get to travel all over the U.S. to coach teachers on how to implement our platform into their curriculum — Can you tell that I love what I do?!

The history behind Vocabulicious is simple! I love to teach students about vocabulary, and I want to help YOU make your classroom a word conscious environment. I’m excited to teach you about the vocabulary activities I have had success with throughout the years. I’m even more thrilled to hear all about what you do! How can we work together to increase our own word knowledge and that of our wonderful students?

I love to travel, hike, run, ride horses and spend time at the ocean. I try to use my own passions to teach students new words they may never be exposed to otherwise!
