Annie Tremonte

Annie Tremonte is a middle school educator in the humanities, who is focused on designing lessons that are both dynamic and molded to the needs of the classroom. Her students are taught to craft well-organized essays, analyze the literary elements of a work of fiction, evaluate the relevancy and accuracy of a text, and read with a sophisticated, critical eye. She has continued to work to implement technology that maximizes student interest and incorporates 21st century skills. Over the course of her teaching career, she has accepted departmental and committee chairmanships, guided school improvement plans that worked to exceed school-wide student achievement goals in reading and writing, and organized numerous school-wide reading initiatives. She puts emphasis on collaborating with colleagues to commonly align curriculum across grade levels and content areas. She is currently studying Digital Education Leadership at Seattle Pacific University, and seeks to expose herself to cutting-edge scholarship in the field to prepare herself academically for the challenge of implementing digital learning in the global age.
