Children's Literacy Initiative

What a great day when I was accepted as a Coach with the CLI program! After an extensive interview, I was accepted into the Coaching program associated with CLI. As a former school administrator, while I had general knowledge of classroom instruction, I did not have specific skills in Langugage Arts instruction. After receiving on-site training and in-the-field support throughout the school year, I was able to develop skills and understanding of the learning process that I did not have before. I was able to support teacher learning and development. I'd like to believe that the teachers with whoom I worked retained a higher level of skills for this year than how they began last school year.
In April, I was recruited to head the academic program in a new charter school in Brooklyn. Due to my ability to ably describe language arts instruction, I secured the new position. Thank you CLI for the research-based training and ever-present support. It was a great experience and I am far more valuable to the instructional process in my new school. Thank you CLI!
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
My new staff of teachers are reaping the benefit of having an instructional leader who understands how Language Arts instruction is implemented. High end of year testing results will be our proof of CLI's implementation.
