I am a third grade teacher in New Mexico who has a passion for public education. I am currently entering my second year teaching. I have been involved with education since 2006.
In 2012 I became familiar with Diane Ravitch’s work The Death and Life of the Great American School System and her blog. I knew I had to join the fight to save public education from corporate reform, and you can too! Visit www.dianeravitch.net
I am a huge fan of the work by The 2 Sisters, Donalyn Miller, Nancie Atwell, and Pam Allyn. I believe in free choice reading during school [and out of school]. I consider myself a Wild Reader, I love children’s and teen novels/books. I hope to spread my love of literacy to my students.
I’m an avid reader of The Reading Teacher journal.
I am public education, and I hope you will join me in my journey!
