Natalie Louis

Natalie Louis is a Senior Lead Staff Developer at the Teachers College Reading and Writing Project at Columbia Unniversity. She loves teachers. Her deepest desire is to make teaching and learning rigorous and fun for both children and teachers. Natalie leads advanced sections at the TCRWP's summer institutes and does data-obsessed staff development locally, nationally, and internationally. Natalie also participates in Thursday Study Groups, where she gets the chance to learn in the company of smart and deeply passionate colleagues. Before joining the Project, Natalie taught grades 1-3 in the New York City public schools. She earned her MA in Teaching and Curriculum from Teachers College and her Reading Specialist license from Fordham University through the Ennis William Cosby Scholarship Program. Her work with lead professor Joanna Uhry helped her gain the skills to support children struggling with literacy. Her very first teaching experience involved teaching ESL to children in the Federated States of Micronesia as a Peace Corps Volunteer. When Natalie is not in her beloved NYC, she is chasing frogs with her boys at her camper, tucked deep in the New Jersey Pine Barrens.
