support that builds the capacity of teachers.

Jill joined MultiLit in early 2020 and is currently involved in MultiLit’s Positive Teaching and Learning Initiative. This program sets the platform to develop products for teachers and schools that bridge the gap between research and practice with a goal to bring evidence-based and practical strategies into the classroom.
