I currently teach 7th grade English and recently (2012) graduated with a masters in reading and a K-12 reading specialist endorsement. I have been interested in pursuing this career path, but have been hesitant about missing my own classroom. Also, a majority if the positions posted are for elementary schools and most of my experience as been middle school (my endorsements also include 4-9 ELA, social studies and math). The lowest grade taught was 6th, however, I did have to complete practicums with elementary students to complete my program. Here is a typical job description: Literacy Facilitator are building level writing and reading experts who serve as a peer coach for classroom instruction. They demonstrate lessons and co-teach, plan with teachers, coordinate the National Writing Project and Reading Fluency training for teachers, provide district Literacy Certification training for teachers, provide para educator training, and participate in all aspects of literacy program development, implementation and evaluation. Qualifications Department of Education Teacher Certification K-6 Required Masters Degree Preferred Certified by the district as a Master Literacy Teacher Experience and reputation as a master teacher Questions: 1) what is your typical day like? How involved are you with students? 2) anyone make the switch from middle school to elementary? Do you think my k-12 reading specialist endorsement will fulfill the k-6 certification requirement? Thanks for the help!
