As the Summit Public Schools literacy coach for pre-kindergarten through fifth grades, Alicia Luick’s role is to lend support to classroom teachers primarily in the areas of reading and writing.
“I work with the teachers in developing curriculum, planning lessons and units, identifying student needs through assessments, and targeting instructions to meet those needs,” Luick said. “I also keep the teachers informed on the most recent research and pedagogy in the literacy field and assist them in translating this information for application in the classroom.”
Luick, who received her MSE in Administration & Supervision from GSE in 2003 and has been an educator for the past 15 years, joined the Summit staff in May 2010 to fill the newly developed position of literacy coach. The position was funded the first year by the Summit Educational Association and this year is being supported by the federal Education Jobs Fund.
