Coaching Connections

Jeanette Barreiro, District Literacy Instructional Coach

Issue 2, Volume 1

I appreciate all the positive responses I received from the first issue of the Coaching Connections newsletter. I have definitely added to my reading list with the book suggestions!

I have had the opportunity to be in several classrooms this week, and I'm looking forward to continuing that pattern in the coming weeks as well! Feel free to invite me to do learning walks with you! As someone who misses the classroom life, it is refreshing to get into rooms and talk to kids for a few hours!

I want to thank everyone for making me feel welcome as I have entered this new role at DCPS. I feel like I'm at home, and I am really enjoying the different requests and partnerships you have included me in at your schools. You are definitely making me feel like this dream job is an actual reality for me!

KRA Mini-Grants

September 25 is the deadline for the Kentucky Reading Association mini-grant opportunities. You must be a KRA member to apply, which is $25 for a year's membership. There are grants available for building classroom libraries, completing classroom research, and even a grant for new teachers to attend the KRA conference this fall. Please pass this opportunity on to teachers in your building so they can take advantage!
