“This [growth] would not have been made possible if it were not for the support and training we have received from TLA. What incredible coaching and inspiration you have provided to the staff and students of our school. In a one word summary and I quote, “WOW!” They were all so impressed, not only by the planning put forth by the teachers, but also by the depth of thinking that students demonstrated in every single classroom we all saw today.”
“I [must] share the amazing transformation happening within the ELA department as a result of the work with TLA. Today, the entire ELA department and our ELD coach learned; observed our students diligently reading, talking, and writing; and debriefed about pushing their practice past their own growing edges.”
“I fully believe your teaching, materials, and recommendations made all the difference and cannot thank you enough for the level of support you provided through your seminar. Rest assured, I’ll be recommending your seminar to any of my educator friends needing to take the Foundations of Reading MTEL.”
“ Our TLA coach hit a home run at every visit, helping us to reflect upon our practices/materials and adjust our instruction. She is able to see the whole big picture and attend to the details and offer advice and solutions to all questions and concerns.”
“ I have learned so much from TLA over the past few years. I don’t know if I have ever received such wonderful professional development in a hands on approach right within my classroom. It has changed my teaching for the better! ”
“I think that TLA made me a better teacher, and no other professional development ever has.’”
To see the growth of my teachers from when we first started with balanced literacy, the pre-launching that Lynn did at the beginning, to where they are now is substantial.
We were blown away! Everyone is very excited. I would not be surprised to see people trying some of what they saw in their own classes this week.
I cannot start my April break without sharing the amazing transformation happening within the ELA department as a result of the work with TLA. Today, the entire ELA department and our ELD coach learned about the balanced literacy model; observed our students diligently reading, talking, and writing; and debriefed about pushing their practice past their own growing edges.
WOW!!! This is an amazing resource! The host’s interaction and ease of instruction is just what I needed to boost my confidence going into the test. I highly recommend that anyone wanting to feel more confident in the content and test process, take this workshop. Also, I highly recommend it to anyone wanting to be a better educator and/or reading instructor. Thank you for the opportunity!
