Curriculum and Literacy Specialist for Multilingual Classrooms

Together we can transform your students' language and literacy outcomes!

I’m Tina and I’ve been a K-12 educator for 14 years. I've taught middle and high school English Language Arts, Reading, Social Studies, French, and Spanish. I've lived in Portland, Oregon for 20 years & I'm the founder of the World Language Proficiency Project & CI Liftoff.


My passion
is supporting teachers to strengthen their literacy instruction, design courses that foster efficient and lasting language acquisition, and implement authentic performance assessment. because

It is my firm belief that when we shift our language instruction to a proficiency stance, we help ensure equitable access to academic success for more students.
