Seminar ImageSerravallo Custom Residencies


Developed by Jennifer Serravallo

Recommended Grade Level: Grades K-8

With a Custom Residency, you can bring Jennifer Serravallo and her colleagues to your school to increase the expertise of your teachers and support their use of Jen’s resources.

How Custom Residencies work:

  • Custom Residencies begin with a school- or district-specific needs assessment to determine the best approach for meeting next-step literacy goals for your teachers and students.
  • Next, choose the number of days and a schedule that works for you and your school.
  • Jen's colleagues can work directly with teachers in classrooms and grade-level team meetings, and/or can provide support to instructional coaches who then work with the teachers.

Jennifer Serravallo's expertise in literacy instruction has been developed throughout her career as a NYC public school teacher and later when she joined the Teachers College Reading and Writing Project (TCRWP) at Columbia University. Through TCRWP, and now as an in-demand leader in literacy consulting, Jen has spent more than fifteen years helping teachers across the US and in Canada to create literacy classrooms where students are joyfully engaged and the instruction is meaningfully individualized to students' goals.

Jen's colleagues are former K-8 teachers, coaches, and school leaders with decades of experience teaching and leading literacy work who have been mentored by Jen for a minimum of five years. They travel throughout the US and internationally to support teachers using Jen's books and resources.

Residency work can be presented in Spanish. If your preference is Spanish PD delivery, please request one of Jen Serravallo's Spanish-speaking colleagues to serve as your professional learning consultant.
