    Hi, Hoot Owl. I am at a reading first school. This is our second year with the grant and I've been the coach for both years. Are you a reading coach, also?

    I'm at at a Reading First school. This our last year with the grant but my second to teach to the program. What do you think of it?

    I think it might be a great program if someone knew how to interpret it correctly. We're monitored like crazy! How about you?

    The title of your original post was 'Reading First Coaches', did you have a question? or needed clarification about the grant?

    No, just wondering how other reading coaches dealt w/teacher.

    This is my school's sixth and last year of the grant but we are checked all the time as if it was brand new. There are aspects of the program that I'm not that fond of, but I guess that goes with anything. I guess my main complaint would be the curriculum. Not a big fan of it. Should be changing in a year or two. We have a fantastic coach who supports the teachers 100%. Without her support not sure if I would have come back this year.

    This is our second year of it. We're supposed to use books from the book room & write lesson plans for the books we use. They also say we must read a new book each day, I have 3 groups so that's 15 different books to write lesson plans for, not counting everything else that goes w/the grant.
