I am a reading interventionist in Colorado, a mom, a lover of a good mystery novel … I like to hike, ski and do yoga. And teach. That last has been slow for me to admit to. Could teaching ever really be cool? Over the last decade I have come to a sense of urgency about teaching. No, this is not just a job, it is a vocation and perhaps even, in a religious sense, a calling. I want to share what I’ve learned, find out what others have learned, and raise the profile and status of rank and file teachers in this country. And that’s me!
