Expository Reading & Writing Course (ERWC)

Hello! My name is Dr. Cara Vorhies Cleek. I grew up attending schools in the Norwalk-La Mirada Unified School District. After high school, I attended Cal State Long Beach for my undergraduate degree, teaching credential, and M.A. in Reading. Then, I attended Cal State Fullerton and completed my educational journey in 2015 with an Ed.D. in Educational Leadership. My publications include: "Leadership 2.0: The Impact of Technology on Leadership Development" (2017) in New Directions for Student Leadership, "Educators' Orientations to Teaching and Learning Within Changing Educational Paradigms: A Mixed Methods Study" (2015), and "Independent Reading Tool: Using Book Conversation Logs to Motivate Adolescent Readers" in California Reader (2012).
I have taught at Norwalk High School since 2006 and have taught Language Arts 9-12 and ERWC. I also taught  Reading Development at Long Beach City College from 2015-2017. My experience teaching at the college level has helped me better serve my high school seniors and prepare them for the next step in their life. I am the Book Club advisor and am currently looking for students to start a new Book Club. One of my favorite things to do is read, which you will find evidence of in all of my classes!
