Natl LDC Coach Jeanette BarreiroDAVIESS COUNTY, Ky. (9/12/17) — Jeanette Barreiro, who serves as the Daviess County Public Schools district’s literacy instructional coach, has earned national certification as a Literacy Design Collaborative coach.
 
Barreiro earned this prestigious designation after a very rigorous certification process that included 24 weeks of professional learning in a blended learning environment. The three-fold process involved authoring an LDC task and collaborating with colleagues to ensure its alignment with appropriate grade level standards; developing an instructional ladder relating to that task; and intensive work in developing effective coaching skills, sharing ideas and protocols, and practicing coaching conversations.
 
Barreiro’s task received an exemplary rating, earning gold star status in CoreTools; and her instructional ladder was rated “Good to Go” with a blue star, which qualified her as a rated task and ladder author.
 
The next steps in meeting certification requirements were done on her own, as Barreiro attended an advanced peer training review in Nashville, Tennessee in July. To be considered a calibrated peer reviewer, she was required to earn six points in each of four levels. She ultimately reviewed 14 different LDC modules in a variety of subject areas and grade levels.
 
As an outstanding model of lifelong learning and professional development, Barreiro’s next goal is to earn a badge as an expert LDC coach. To meet those requirements, she will coach five individual teachers in developing LDC modules that earn “good to go” or “exemplary” ratings through peer review. Her plan is to develop a cohort this fall, bringing together teacher leaders from across the DCPS district who will work through developing high-quality tasks and ladders.
 
“My desire is to help other teachers who want to receive National LDC Coach status,” said Barreiro, when asked why she is undertaking the rigorous process. “It would be wonderful for several teachers from DCPS to accomplish this.” T

his is a tribute to Barreiro’s willingness to step forward as a positive example of leadership and excellence in teaching.
 
She understands that the single greatest factor in student success is teacher quality. By cultivating, nurturing and encouraging an environment in which other teachers may follow her example of continuous growth and improvement, Jeanette Barreiro has demonstrated an exemplary commitment to putting Kids First in everything she does.

“Daviess County Public Schools committed to the Literacy Design Collaborative in 2010 when the work was still an idea,” said Jana Beth Francis, DCPS assistant superintendent of teaching and learning. “I am thrilled the district has participated in all aspects of the LDC work. Jeanette’s recognition as a LDC Coach is just another way we show our commitment to making sure all teachers know how to effectively teach reading, writing, speaking and listening in any subject area. Jeanette works each and every day in our classrooms supporting our teachers in the field.  Our LDC work wouldn’t be moving forward without her. She has a passion for literacy that can’t be matched.”
