Portland Reading Council to honor Linwood Elementary teacher Donna Butuso
This year, a teacher from North Clackamas School District is one of three winners of Portland Reading Council awards to honor outstanding literacy educators in the metro area.
The North Clackamas winner of the Celebrate Literacy award is Donna Butuso, the Title 1 Instructional Coach for Linwood Elementary School in Milwaukie. She will recieve her award on May 11 at the Monarch Hotel in Clackamas.
Butuso leads Linwoods professional development, facilitates data and RTI meetings, and works closely with teachers to design appropriate interventions to assist student learning. She teaches a weekly toddler/preschool Storytime group to children in the community.
Donna also participates in the Intercambio/Madres meetings and was instrumental in supporting the implementation of full-day kindergarten in the district, said Portland Reading Council board member Anna Davis. She is highly regarded by her colleagues as a gracious, supportive and knowledgeable educator.
