Becca Gimlett
Literacy Lab Specialist

Ms. Gimlett is the Reading Specialist at Blue Heron Middle School. She's also new to the school, and Port Townsend! She previously taught 9th grade English Language Arts and Literacy Lab at a high school in Salem, Oregon. 

Originally from California, she graduated from the University of California, Davis, with a B.A. in Linguistics and German. At first, she worked at an animal shelter as a volunteer coordinator, which is how she discovered she loved teaching! So, she got her Master of Arts in Teaching from Lewis and Clark College in Portland, Oregon, was hired in Salem after graduation, and now she's here!

Ms. Gimlett believes every student can learn and grow, and that every student is a reader and a writer. She believes in the power of laughter, zombies, and second chances.
