Katie's Workshops

    Katie Elder, Program Specialist, Secondary ELA & Social Studies


    In twenty years as a teacher I have had many roles, including continuation high school English teacher, Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate teacher, district staff development specialist, reading interventionist, and high school librarian. Each of these experiences has given me fresh perspectives on what it takes to engage learners from diverse backgrounds. I look forward to working with teachers one-on-one and in small groups, observing classroom interactions, and even modeling teaching strategies. As I meet with teachers, my goal is to support their intentional planning, strategic teaching, meaningful assessment, and personal reflection.
