What is the most inspiring part of your job?
“The most inspiring part of my job is watching teachers become masterful in their craft. Specifically, I enjoy watching their love for our literacy curriculum, Literacy Essentials, deepen over time. Students and teachers experience joy and wonder as they learn the orthographic principles, morphology, and etymology of English. Teachers have the opportunity to transform students' lives, minds, and hearts as they become outstanding readers and writers. Seeing the impact our teachers have on students is powerful and fulfilling.”
