Ms. Tse from San Francisco CA is requesting professional development through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Professional development

Always Learning, Always Growing Literacy Professional Development

I need a powerful 3 day Reading Recovery Professional Development at the National Reading Recovery Literacy Conference. This is a training that transforms literacy instruction and practices to increase student achievement.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My students are eager, self-driven kids who give it their all, every day.

Nearly 80% of my students come from low-income, newcomer families.

Our students live in small one-room apartments where having their own library at home is not possible. Books are hard to access, and we want to have good materials and teaching accessible for our students. Our students need a chance to have fair access to quality instruction so that they can achieve beyond what their parents work so hard for. Our students are their families' hopes and dreams.

My Project

As a necessary part of teaching reading intervention and coaching, I am continually learning and practicing in the field. This conference is the best for the continual growth of Reading Recovery Specialists like me. Armed with better strategies to reach our struggling readers, I will be able to effectively reach the students who need the most support.

Over 100 sessions available will help to address quality literacy instruction for classroom, coaching, intervention, and leadership; topics include reading, writing, diverse learners, comprehensive literacy, EL, vocabulary, word study, phonemic awareness, comprehension, differentiated instruction, and social-emotional learning.

Reading Recovery's proven strategies will help struggling readers in intervention and classroom settings. This is the training that I seek to be a better educator.
