Hello, my name is Allison Birch. This is my seventh class in the EdD program. I am a former elementary school teacher K-5. I earned my M.S in Education and Reading Literacy from Walden in 2004. I spent ten years teaching K-5 and I taught reading to the struggling readers in each grade level along with a highly capable group. I also was a mentor teacher for the student teacher program which lead me to want to earn my EdD. My hope is to work in training and placement of student teachers.
I am a mother of one beautiful daughter. I am currently living in the south but I lived and worked most of my life in the Pacific North West. I lived between Portland Oregon, and Seattle WA. Both places are beautiful and unique. I enjoy walking 5-K’s, the beach, baking, and being with friends and family. I have enjoyed learning in this program and look forward to working with all of you.
My plan for this course it to learn as much as possible so that I can use technology in my teaching.
Best Wishes for a great class.
