Master Reading Teacher Certification
The Master Reading Teacher Certification Program focuses on developing the knowledge and skills of teachers of reading from grades K-12. Participants will focus on a deep understanding of the principles of reading instruction, best practices to support all students and methods for serving as a literacy leader at the campus.
The Master Reading Teacher Certification Program is a yearlong exploration on how to understand the process of learning to read, implement best practices for reading instruction, including support for students with specific reading needs, and how to help colleagues in doing the same.
To be eligible to apply for the program, you will need a minimum of: 3+ years of teaching, a Bachelor's Degree (or higher) with a 2.5+ GPA, letters of recommendation and a complete application. A committee will then review your application.
