About Us

Christine Woodcock has always loved school, reading and children’s literature, which is what inspired her to pursue a doctorate in Reading from the University at Albany. She is passionate about working with children, families, and teachers around issues of literacy. From a young age, Christine began working as a child care provider, children’s librarian, art teacher, and dance instructor. These experiences helped mold her into the professional educator she is today. After teaching special education in a variety of urban, rural, and suburban environments in K-8th grade settings, Christine served as a full time professor for the Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts, Towson University, and Southern New Hampshire University. There she was fortunate enough to help educate a new generation of teachers, specializing in courses such as Reading and Language Arts, Children’s Literature, and Literacy Assessment. Christine is currently an adjunct instructor for American International College, and is devoting time at home to writing children’s books of her own, and to springboard her new business endeavor– Reflective Renewal
