Additional Support for Coaches
We want our volunteers to feel fully supported throughout the school year so in addition to Professional Development workshops the Reading Seed Volunteer Manager and Trainer is available to provide coaches one-on-one meetings and observation of coaching sessions. To schedule a meeting or an observation, please e-mail Jessica at JDennes@Literacyconnects.org.
Also, for those coaches who wish to learn about the content of a Professional Development workshop but are unable to attend, we can email the presentation materials to you. To receive the materials, please email Jessica at JDennes@LiteracyConnects.org.
- Professional Development Workshops for Coaches
- Lending Library: With over 19,000 books available to Coaches, the Lending Library is a great place to look for books that match your students’ interests and reading abilities. Follow this link to access the Lending Library’s online catalog. For more information, please view the Lending Library FAQ.
- Free Book Area: We have a collection of gently used free books and we encourage coaches to give each student one new book every week to help encourage independent reading. By the end of the school year, your student will have their own private library they can feel proud to share with others.
