Leslie Haas’ experience in literacy education includes teaching at the K-12, undergraduate, and graduate levels. Additional experiences include instructional coaching, professional development, curriculum design, and department administration. Opportunities in highly diverse settings have acted as both a catalyst and foundation for her focus on integrating and connecting literacy across disciplines through culturally and linguistically responsive instructional practices. She is particularly interested in technology-based literacy opportunities for underrepresented populations through engagement with popular culture, specifically gaming and fanfiction.
At A Studio in the Woods, she worked on outlining a book series grounded in disciplinary literacy which supports K-5 national standards in math, science, and social studies through gamified learning experiences.
