What does a literacy consultant do?

A literacy consultant listens to YOUR challenges and needs and serves as thinking partner to help you in making steps toward greater student success.  Consultants can work with educators at the classroom and school level.  

How does it work?

We’ll communicate via email to set up all appointments, then meet virtually  through Zoom for coaching calls.  I’m a full-time educator just like you.  Therefore, we’ll work together to find a time and day of the week that works best for you.  I’m available most days after school and in the evening, and am very flexible on weekends.  

How do I book appointments?

The initial getting to know you session is always free, and is set up via email.  All coaching conversations, including this initial one, are done through Zoom. When you’re ready to set up a more thorough conversation, payments are accepted through Paypal to officially start sessions.  Head over to the Coaching Services page to book a session.

What if I need more than 4 weeks to reach my goals?

Don’t worry! We will simply add on more sessions. We can work out a discounted rate for this if we are already in a cycle. I have you, every step of the way!

Do you do coaching beyond the elementary level?

All of my experience is with K-5 instruction. This is for sure my comfort zone!

What if we’re not a good fit?

Just like a doctor is not right for every patient, a coach isn’t right for every teacher. This is why the first getting to know you session is so important. I need YOU to feel comfortable. While it is my sincerest hope that I can help you, if you decide I’m not right for you, that’s ok!

Do you work with just teachers?

Everyone deserves a coach. Teaching–and literacy in particular–can be tough. My mission is to help as many educators as I can to feel confident in their practice. I work with educators….so if you’re a coach yourself or even an administrator, I’m here for you, too!

Do you have a TPT store?

No. My goal is to SIMPLIFY things for teachers. The last thing anyone needs is more stuff. I also am not out for money, so I’ll never create things just to make a few extra dollars. Because downloads don’t help you gain skills and confidence…only coaching can do that!
