Jeannette Cannon – Title 1 Programs Coordinator
As TIA’s Programs Coordinator, my roles include Reading Specialist, ESL Teacher, McKinney-Vento Liaison, and Youth On Their Own (YOTO) Liaison. I’m from a military family, grew up in Arizona, and lived overseas in Guam for nine years. I graduated with my bachelor’s degree in elementary education from Northern Arizona University, and my master’s degree in bilingual/multicultural education from the University of Arizona. I also have my TEFL and TESOL certifications (Teaching English as a Foreign Language/ Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages). I became a teacher because I’ve always loved school, lifelong learning, and working with students to increase their confidence, skills, and love of reading. Nothing warms my heart more than when a student makes a breakthrough and their face lights up with a big smile! My passions include reading, teaching, traveling, playing my saxophone and clarinet, teaching English online to my Chinese students with VIPKID, and Toastmasters. “You can never get a cup of tea large enough or a book long enough to suit me.” C.S.
