I have been a proud educator for 15 years. I have spent the last 4 years as an instructional reading coach. I am also a reading specialist working with at risk readers and dyslexic students.
I believe that students need to talk and move in order to learn. Students learn best in an environment where they feel valued and heard. Learning is a lifelong commitment, if I am not learning I am stagnant, therefore I must model what this looks like for my students and colleagues I work with and lead.
