Literacy Specialist

Hi!  My name is Ms. Mary.  I am the new Literacy Specialist at Cityview.

I am happy to be here!   I have been an elementary classroom teacher in Spanish Immersion for 14 years in Minneapolis.  For the last 9 years, I have had the privilege of being trained as a content focus coach and literacy specialist with the continuous support of the district, the University of Pittsburg, and then UEI (University of Chicago).

Something interesting about me is that I grew up in this Cityview neighborhood as a child.  My old school was called McKinley and was torn down in the 1970's.  Cityview is still the name of our community neighborhood.

I love to work with students and staff to support best practice in Literacy at our school.  I also speak Spanish!
