Grace Chiu has witnessed the power of literacy in the lives of thousands of children and youth. As a National Blue Ribbon teacher, she has nurtured pre-emergent readers into voracious, thoughtful ones. As a literacy coach, Grace firmly believes that literacy is not just an academic pursuit, but the hinge between knowledge and empowerment.
Having worked with K-12 students on both the east and west coasts, Grace is thrilled to coach teachers from all grade levels. Besides working with teachers, Grace enjoys educating parents on best literacy practices for children. She is the co-author of the book, Bonding While Learning, which received the iParenting Media Award.
Grace holds a Ph.D. in Education from UCLA and an Ed.M. from Harvard. But don’t worry, she isn’t stuck in an ivory tower. Currently, Grace coaches teachers in the Uinta County School District and absolutely loves it. When she isn’t coaching, Grace serves as Project Director of coaching programs for the Center for Educational Leadership at the University of Washington.
