Academic Literacy Coach

My name is Joanne Bostanche and I am thrilled to be a part of the Hardee Junior High School family! I am the new Academic Literacy Coach here at HJH. I have a Bachelor's degree in Comparative Literature and a Master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction, both from New England College. Being certified in English 6-12, Reading endorsed and ESOL endorsed, I have taught Language Arts and Intensive Reading in both New Hampshire and here in the sunshine state. I also taught at River Valley State College as part of their adjunct faculty in their English department.

While being the Academic Literacy Coach at Lake Placid High School, I was voted Teacher of the Year by my faculty and staff and was also voted the district's Academic Literacy Coach for the district based on school data. I then went on to work as a Literacy Specialist for the Florida Department of Education's Office of Differentiated Accountability for Region 4.

It is with great enthusiasm that I begin the next chapter of my professional journey at Hardee Junior High School!
