Katherine Wears

Katie Wears brings years teaching in primary classrooms and working as a literacy coach to her current role as a staff developer at TCRWP. In this capacity, Katie helps schools throughout the country develop coherent, joyful approaches to teaching reading and writing. For Katie, the challenge is not just to play Johnny Appleseed, carrying great ideas from one site to another, but also to help schools themselves become centers for professional inquiry. Her greatest challenge, then, is always to figure out ways to tap into the passions and dreams and talents of teachers with whom she is so fortunate to work. At Teachers College, Katie teachers advanced sections at summer institutes and leads study groups for literacy coaches as well as for teachers. She works closely with students from Teachers College's Literacy Specialist Program who apprentice with her. Those who know Katie know all about her role as the proud aunt to three enthusiastic super readers: Owen, Keegan, and Parker; and of her love for the North Country and its teachers and kids.
