About Dr. Danielle Rylak...
Position: Reading Specialist

Hello Conley Coyotes! I am looking forward to reading with you this year.
My Education and Professional Background
My undergraduate degree is from The College of New Jersey, and I earned my masters in Literacy Curriculum and Instruction from Teachers College, Columbia University. I recently graduated with my PhD in Learning, Literacies, and Technologies from Arizona State University. I have taught elementary school in New Jersey and Arizona, and I support teachers with becoming literacy specialists.
My Educational Philosophy
As Mark Twain noted, we should not let schooling get in the way of our education, and like Paulo Freire, I believe in supporting students with learning to read both the word and the world.
