Christine Woodcock has always loved school, reading and children’s literature, which is what inspired her to pursue a doctorate in Reading from the University at Albany. She is passionate about working with children, families, and teachers around issues of literacy. From a young age, Christine began working as a child care provider, children’s librarian, art teacher, and dance instructor. Those experiences helped mold her into the professional educator she is today. After teaching special education in a variety of urban, rural, and suburban environments in K-8th grade settings, Christine served as a full time professor for the Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts, Towson University, and Southern New Hampshire University. As a professor, she is fortunate enough to help educate a new generation of teachers, specializing in courses such as Reading and Language Arts, Children’s Literature, and Literacy Assessment. Christine is currently the Program Director for the Reading program at American International College.
