My name is Jalyn Stanley and I have worked in a large urban school district for the past 16 years as a teacher, reading specialist, coach and district staff developer. I completed my undergraduate studies in education at Appalachian State University followed by a Masters Degree in Reading Education from UNC Charlotte. Additionally, I am National Board Certified in Literacy.
I can provide full day, half day or consecutive days of staff development and or coaching in the components of Balanced Literacy. I am specifically interested in leading school staff and administrators in the implementation of a Balanced Literacy teaching model and helping schools get Reading workshop “up and running”.
