Our Four Systems Model™️

The Educator Collaborative provides K-12 literacy professional development to schools across the United States and around the world. Our professional development supports four key systems necessary for student development in reading, writing, and language.

Our expertise is in designing high quality, inspirational, and immediately practical professional learning that facilitates educators in strengthening research-based, classroom proven, literacy pedagogy through an anti-bias, culturally affirming lens.

We value building trusting, respectful, and collaborative relationships that last years. We aim to not just be “providers,” but members of the District family. We focus on supporting educators, not selling programs. As adults develop a deeper knowledge of literacy content, methods, assessment practices, and environment building, they are better equipped to plan for and respond to the developmental needs of the diverse, multilingual students in their care.

What educators are saying…

Our research-based approach to educator professional development aims to build capacity within schools, districts, and networks, in which we work. Our whole-school approach includes supporting classroom teachers, instructional coaches, and leaders.

Whether you are seeking yearlong literacy consulting and staff development for your school; a professional development day training; on-site summer institutes; or online professional development—we have the experience, passion, research-based practices, and engaging literacy consultants to support your professional growth.
