Title: i3 Grant Project Manager, National Writing Project’s College-Ready Writers Program
Years at NSU: First year
Job description: Through the NSU Writing Project, I manage a federal grant to provide writing-focused professional development for teachers. The College-Ready Writers Program is a national study designed to improve writing instruction and achievement in rural schools and NSU Writing Project is one of only 12 sites in the U.S. selected to participate.
Why I Like Working at Northwestern: Everyone on campus is so friendly and helpful, and NSU has an excellent reputation among the teachers we serve. Many are College of Education alumni, and they are always glad to see us coming. As an NSU graduate myself, I enjoy being part of a university with such a long-standing tradition of academics and the arts.
