I’m a teacher educator at a university in OK, working with all programs that certify educators. I taught 5th grade and 6-12th grade library media for 6 years, served as faculty in teacher education (Elementary Ed./Literacy) for 5.5 years, and got to work placing educator candidates with effective, caring mentors (luckily we have lots of those) in schools to apply what they were learning for a few years before my current administrative position.¬†Views are my own.
