The Literacy Coach 

 Professional Development, Coaching & Training

Do you need a local literacy expert to train and coach your staff? With over 25 years of teaching experience and training in literacy instruction, my resume will reflect a wide variety of expertise upon which professional development can be designed uniquely for your needs.  From pre-K educator, to middle school reading/writing specialist, to Director of Title 1 Services, to 10 years as an adjunct at SNHU School of Education, I have purposefully sought the breadth of experiences that build solid expertise.  As a literacy coach, my work is to grow capability in others by asking questions, modeling, connecting teachers to resources and guiding them to reflect on their work through analysis of outcomes.  Professional development can be conducted at The Literacy Coach Reading and Writing Center or within the school or organization.
