What was your favorite childhood book? Crysanthemum by Kevin Henkes
What inspires you to support literacy? The entire community in which I interact with continues to inspire me to support literacy. Everyone from principals to parents and all staff members I engage with daily bring to life the work being done.
What makes Literacy Trust special to you? I love how we empower and inspire our people in the work we do. Hearing the various success stories from the community and pairing that with the goal of becoming a social justice organization has truly made me reflect on how fortunate I am to be working alongside such great individuals.
