To broaden my knowledge of best practices in reading instruction. To synthesis the information to enable students in
developing a lifelong love of reading. To illuminate the perspective of reading from a mundane chore to a higher level
thinking process that encourages each student to interact with the text. I aspire to continue to grow as a learner through
knowledge, application, and reflection. I am committed to guiding and motivating colleagues to best serve our students.
