Toni Rose Deanon is a middle school English teacher at DC International School in Washington, DC. She has been teaching for 9 years, and absolutely loves every minute of it. Her favorite challenge every year is trying to get all of her students to like or love reading. She is passionate about reading and sharing stories, student-centered classes, classroom technology, social and emotional learning, restorative justice, and flexible seating. When she’s not reading, she’s laughing with her students, dancing with her dog, eating ice cream, working out, or napping.
