Who I Am

JB 032 - Version 2 (1)

I am a teacher/practitioner who lives in schools. I believe it is important to work in schools collaboratively with students and teachers to empower them to become lifelong learners. It is now 2014! It is time to rethink what is developmentally appropriate and to incorporate multilingual/non-dominant language learning into the curriculum. How we value the language diversity students bring to school is important. At the university level, I prepare teachers to enter the current workforce and to become literacy leaders. When I am not working, I explore new children’s books, bike or spend time in nature.
