JOINED OXFORD COMMUNITY SCHOOLS
June 2007

Oxford Community Schools has offered me the opportunities to teach multiple grades during my time in the classroom as well as become PYP Certified. In my current role as a Literacy Coach/Consultant, I have had the opportunity to work for Columbia University's Teachers College Reading and Writing Project, a literacy think tank and a provide of curriculum and professional development in literacy instruction. During that time, I facilitated teachers and teacher leaders around the country in implementing reading and writing curriculum and instruction K-8. Currently I support the District in implementing literacy instruction K-5, which allows me to work with and learn alongside Oxford's amazing and dedicated teachers!

It is not a surprise that I love spending tie with a good book or reading aloud to children. My husband, Tony Magdaleno, and I have raised three beautiful children that continue to help us learn, change and grow. We enjoy bike riding, gardening, walking, cross country skiing, reading and discussing our learning, and traveling. We also love our newest opportunity which is spending time with our grandchildren!
