My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Children's Literacy Initiative, Philadelphia, PA, USA
I attended a CLI Institute for Teach For America corps members in the summer of 2009, and I have to say it was one of the most valuable instructional trainings I have ever had--it really took my teaching to a higher level. I am currently working in a low-income urban school (past my 2-year TFA commitment), and I often use the strategies and techniques we examined in that seminar--to the great benefit of my students. I wish I could have had more training with CLI. I am convinced that their model of supporting teachers through collaborative coaching is the most effective way to improve instruction over the long term. I know they would do wonders for my school.
