MY NAME IS MYLA.
AS AN EDUCATOR since 1991, when I graduated from Michigan State University’s College of Education and accepted my first job as a third-grade teacher at Colony Meadows in Fort Bend ISD, Texas. There, I taught for three years before returning to Port Huron, Michigan, to Garfield Elementary, where I taught fourth grade. Throughout those early “new teacher” years, I deepened my understanding of gifted and talented education, literacy practices, and differentiation. Then, in the Novi Community School District, I found great joy in working with children, adults, and administrators as an elementary educator, PBL Specialist, and instructional coach for over 20 years.
