What I like most about my role within the Center is…
I love to teach! It is so rewarding to see how our work with educators can be so empowering and transformative. When you think in new ways about literacy teaching and learning, you change your practice to improve the school experiences of children.
What I believe in
The power of literacy to improve, enrich, and change people’s lives.
Previous work highlights
Many years as a classroom teacher, Reading Recovery teacher, and literacy coach in Michigan, Germany, Minnesota, and Florida.
