Fostering a Culture of Literacy

We believe our students’ unique backgrounds and experiences are the foundation for their literacy.
All teachers identify as literacy instructors
We believe that our classrooms should be print rich and will provide culturally relevant materials where students see themselves.
Together, we can build a community of literate citizens who can and will read in order to deepen their understanding of themselves and the world around them, and effectively communicate their unique perspectives.
