Associate Director, K-12 Partnerships
Sally has been the director of the Children's Literacy Project since the fall of 2001. She is passionate about education issues and she is deeply committed to closing the opportunity gap for local youth. If you can’t find Sally on campus, you might try one of her partner schools where she works closely with teachers, students, and Seattle U undergraduates engaged in service.
Given her passion and interest in public education, Sally describes the Seattle University Youth Initiative as a “dream come true.” She looks forward to supporting the implementation of the plan and will focus her energy and attention on strengthening K-12 partnerships.
Prior to joining the SU staff, Sally spent seven years working with low-income youth living in public housing communities. She holds a K-12 teaching certificate from the University of Washington and a Master’s Degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Seattle University. In addition to directing the CLP, Sally is an adjunct professor in the Liberal Studies Program where she teaches two education courses, and she is the faculty advisor for the Coalition for Education Equity.
