Literacy Supports: Beyond the School Day
Future Ready Collier welcomes Dr. Colleen Fletcher, Coordinator of Elementary Literacy for Collier County Public Schools (CCPS).
Dr. Fletcher (Ed.D., Curriculum and Instruction, Florida Gulf Coast University) is the Coordinator of Elementary Literacy for Collier County Public Schools. She began her career in education nearly 30 years ago and has worked in all educational capacities including classroom teacher, reading resource teacher, literacy coach, and district literacy specialist. She is passionate about building a culture of reading for all children and considers herself a lifelong learner.
Recently, Dr. Fletcher has been working with CCPS and national education leaders to roll out a new literacy program for K-5 schools in Collier County.
Future Ready Collier and CCPS have been integral partners in the collective impact efforts over the last several years. There has been an increased interest and opportunity to cross-collaboratively share the material that Dr. Fletcher has been developing. This presentation is specifically tailored to Future Ready Collier partners and beyond who support literacy, wherever and however our community interacts with children.
The event will be moderated by Lisa Morse, Director of Community Engagement and Strategic Initiatives for CCPS. She encourages anyone working with elementary school aged children in classrooms, homes, and everywhere in between to attend, “Come and learn how literacy is being taught, why it is taught this way, and how you can support student literacy.”
Lisa is also the Co-Chair of Future Ready Collier’s School Success Goal Group, and is the leader of the Literacy Supports Priority Team. Lisa’s passion in collective engagement and action is contagious, and her leadership has been a key component to Future Ready Collier’s success.
Join this important presentation to ensure all our young people have the best opportunity to thrive. If you are unable to attend for the timing of the online event, simply register and you will receive the recording when available.
This event is free and open to the public.
