Instructor: Rita Platt
Teaching reading, writing and ESL are Rita Platt's passion. She's a National Board Certified teacher and has taught 1st, 2nd, 4th, 5th and 7th grade. As a reading/literacy specialist and independent consultant she's worked with grades pre-kindergarten through adult-aged learners. From tiny isolated Inuit villages in remote Alaska, to inner-city schools in major urban areas, to her current role as the teacher-librarian at a small school in northern Wisconsin, Rita has loved it all! Teaching online courses has been a highlight of Rita's career, as she loves being able to support her fellow teachers in their quests to better meet the needs of students. Rita is the mother to two wonderful children, a boy and a girl, and her hobbies are reading, playing the guitar, writing, and traveling whenever and wherever she can.
