One of my teaching positions a few years back was in reading intervention. I withdrew small groups of kids from their classrooms for intensive, daily reading assistance. I would teach them decoding skills, letter sounds and about punctuation. I listened to them read and encouraged fluency. I worked with their classroom teachers to identify individual needs and planned accordingly.
Basically, there was a problem (lack of knowledge/practice/engagement/etc) and I intervened.
That was my job.
But my passion now is to intervene in a different way.
I want to educate people on how they can help stop the single-use plastic crisis.
