I am your 2018-19 teacher librarian, certified in ed media, social studies, and language arts. This is my 5th year in the Franklin Library. Before that I taught Psychology, Global Studies, Women’s Literature, and Sophomore English at Franklin High since 1991. In 2011-12 I was Franklin’s Instructional Support Specialist. Some of my teaching highlights include traveling with other educators to Costa Rica, launching the FHS Slam , and co-creating Verselandia! I love jars of tea, people who make me laugh and share their music, good books, & pie. I graduated from Reed College (English), S.U.N.Y. Buffalo (Law), & Lewis & Clark (Education). I have a 22 year old daughter who graduated from Franklin and the Clark Honors College at University of Oregon, majoring in Sports Journalism. She is now a television journalist & anchor NBC Right Now in the Tri Cities. You can follow her on Twitter at @EmmaChilds11. The three years I was not at Franklin I served as the teacher-librarian at Harrison Park (Clark Binnsmead )K-8 and at Jackson Middle School. I also served as Jackson’s writing coach in 09-10 and its Technology Facilitator in 10-11. I continue to work as a teacher-consultant for the Oregon Writing Project and am also a writer for Rethinking Schools. What do I read? Check out
