The Literacy Coach will support all K-5 staff with the implementation of our client's Core Knowledge Language Arts (CKLA) curriculum and STEP Literacy assessment.

Responsibilities:

  • Enhance teacher’s instructional practices and implementation of the CKLA curriculum and STEP literacy assessment.
  • Report to, and provide regular updates to the School principal on teacher’s curriculum implementation and data collection.
  • Conduct formal and informal observations of teacher’s literacy practices.
  • Work with outside consultants and professional development trainers to facilitate a coordinated approach to staff’s development of literacy instructional practices.
  • Guide teachers to collect and analyze data and develop action plans in response to student needs.
  • Oversee the school’s STEP literacy assessment procedures, data collection, and analysis.
  • Oversee and manage guided reading.
  • Review lesson plans and provide feedback.
  • Participate fully in professional development opportunities.

Qualifications:

  • 5+ years of elementary classroom experience
  • Knowledge of the Core Knowledge Language Arts (CKLA) Curriculum
  • Knowledge of strong reading and writing strategies/practices
  • Use of running records
  • Outstanding presentation and facilitation skills
  • Strong data analysis skills, and the ability to translate this knowledge into student and teacher action plans
  • Interpersonal skills (communication, problem solving, conflict management, collaboration) to share research based instructional approaches with teachers and administrators and provide advice, mentoring and coaching.
  • Strong organizational skills

Literacy Coach

As Reading Interventionist & Coach you are expected to utilize historic STEP Literacy and NWEA assessments, when available, as well as formative and summative assessments from curriculum for each student in order to group students within each classroom by particular literacy skill deficits in order to help teachers conduct purposeful small group instruction to remediate those deficits during literacy blocks.

From time to time you will model best practices for small group instruction within each classroom and prepare monthly progress reports for the principal on student progress and teacher effectiveness in small group instruction. All these efforts are for the purpose of closing student achievement gaps. Maintaining a passion for the mission and vision of the school, you are expected to work some evening and weekend hours as part of your normal duties.

Thank you!
