Becoming a Reading Specialist

Alum Leadership in Teaching: Literacy Specialist/Coach (Reading Specialist)

I had never thought about being anything but a classroom teacher; yet after years of experience, I considered becoming a reading specialist. This led me to the Notre Dame’s Reading Specialist/Literacy Coach Program, where I learned that I could also be a teacher of teachers. Reaching teachers is reaching students, and isn’t that why we all entered this profession?
