Heather Rodman

Literacy Trainer

What I like most about my role within the Center is…

Working with teachers. I love working, thinking, and reflecting with teachers about their thoughts, feelings, and beliefs about teaching and learning.

What I believe in

Teachers! Teachers are the instructional decision makers in classrooms. They are the ones who make a difference in the world. I believe that every teacher is an agent of change. There is nothing more powerful than a group of teachers thinking, talking, and reflecting about their instructional practices.
