I work in an inner city school in Chicago, and we have had the advantage to have two literacy coordinators and a professor from a college who are supposed to be "helping" all the staff. My problem with this is that THEY AREN'T HELPING AT ALL! They do not go into classrooms and model lessons, which really ticks me off. They do present, but they clearly don't know what they are talking about. I feel like I am already an expert on the things they present. There are two groups of teachers in my school who are getting their master's in reading, and we are the ones doing all the best practice teaching, without any support. The coordinators are very nice people and I think that's why no one has said anything. But it has started to get REALLY frustrating. Any comments/ or suggestions?
