About Julie Jost Burchstead

I am a reader, writer, teacher, reading specialist, andJulie Literacy Coach in the Green Mountains of Vermont. My passion for reading and writing reaches nearly as far back as my earliest memories.

My work in literacy is driven by these beliefs:

~ Active reading lives make us more knowledgeable and compassionate human beings.

~ Living life through the lens of a writer causes us to be more actively engaged in the world around us.

~ Literate people have richer lives open to greater possibilities.

~ Students who are a part of joyful and supportive literary communities grow in  life-changing ways beyond academics.

~ Choice, time, authentic purpose, literary reflection and talk, mentor texts, and knowledgeable, passionate teachers are the most important tools for developing literate students.
