The NESA International Literacy Coaching Cohort
January 2019 - April 2020
Instructors: MONICA MEDINA, EdD, & SHANNON BECKLEY, Literacy Consultant
A knowledgeable, well trained literacy coach can support principals and curriculum specialists by providing deep and sustainable change in literacy instruction. A literacy coach is someone who can induct and mentor new teachers, organize professional book studies, create level book rooms, provide demonstration teaching, and engage in side-by-side coaching.
This program offers in-depth training over time and the chance to network with literacy specialists and school leaders around the region.
This has been, far and away, the best professional development experience I have ever had the privilege to take part in. Through each session I've grown in new ways, both in my understanding of literacy instruction, and in my ability to coach others.
