I spoke with Kathy Wittke again today about the role of Literacy Coaches and how classroom teachers need to understand the job of the coaches. The job description was changed this year as the District transitioned from Literacy Facilitators to Literacy Coaches. The same level of services provided prior to this year cannot be expected with Coaches servicing two schools. Coaches are to help teachers provide interventions in their classrooms. Coaches are not to be pulling students out.
The job description for Literacy Coaches is going to be redefined again. Kathy has said she will give me that job description once it is finalized. I will distribute it, so all teachers will understand the role of the Coaches.
