Ali Hurd is a world traveler who landed in Oregon and now calls it her home. She started as a teacher in the Peace Corps in Nicaragua and then moved on to getting her Masters in Bilingual/Bicultural Education at Columbia University while teaching in New York City. From there she taught ELD in California and then was a PYP teacher in a Dual Language program at an International School in Mexico. After the classroom, she became an ELL instructional coach, where she used her coaching skills to support teachers and principals in making instruction more accessible for ALL kids. When she is not working with data teams, she is either chasing after her four daughters, running, or hanging out at the beach with her family.
