Prior to becoming a university professor, she was a bilingual elementary school teacher, reading interventionist and literacy coach for 24 years. She is a National Board Certified middle childhood generalist with expertise in evidence-based literacy practices and culturally relevant pedagogy.

During the 2022-23 and 2023-24 school years, Green supervised a grant-funded reading intervention program called Reading Go. Through this program, more than 50 Gwinnett County Public School primary grade students have received reading support from trained GGC tutors.
