    Reading Specialist in need of advice
    By KAS

    Clip to ScrapBook
    Next year I will be serving an elementary K-4 campus as a reading specialist and literacy coach. Although I've had experience working in each role seperately I've never managed a dual role. I will be sitting down with the principal in the next couple of weeks to solidify our vision for my position. He has already mentioned that helping implement RtI will be a big part of my job regarding assessment and documentation of growth for struggling readers and providing effective interventions. In addition he thinks he'd like me to continue the traditional pull out reading program with struggling readers as well as provide staff development and demonstrate lessons for teachers. All though I'm very excited about the potential of this campus having such support my head is already spinning. I have read as many books as I can get my hands on as well as read as many articles via the website as I can find. There is so much out there I don't even know where to start! Is there anyone out there that has experienced managing such a dual role effectively? I'd like a model to work from. My main concern is scheduling my time in such a way that my support for students and teachers is enough to make a difference. Any advice would be greatly appreciated:)
