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 2020! 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.

  1. Hi Jane,
    Are you working as a consultant with schools regarding the TC Workshop model?
    I would love to catch up with you.



    1. Hello!
      Sorry for the delay in responding.
      Are you teaching first grade this year? In response to your question about developmentally appropriate I wonder if students are reading across a band of leveled books to practice reading? In addition, to they have time and access to fun books they would like to read? Finally, what types of books are your students reading these days?
