Literacy/ELD Teacher, Bryant Webster Dual Language School
"Dr. Wilcox loves reading, and she loves to get students reading more. She has worked tirelessly to ensure that all students have books in their hands as much as possible. From organizing library volunteers to getting the bookmobile on campus and inviting Denver Public Library (DPL) staff to collaborate closely with our staff, to finding funding for students to participate in Book Trust (and the list goes on) -- Dr. Wilcox has instilled a love of reading into our students and created opportunities for all kids to have new, high-quality texts. As a result of her work over the last several years, our students have been awarded an entire library of graphic novels, visited with popular authors, taken home thousands of free books, and been honored for having the highest number of DPL library checkouts from any DPS school. Thank you for building equity in access to books and helping us have fun reading them!"
