Our district is also looking at hiring literacy coaches in the near future. Last week we went on a visitation to a neighboring district that is similar in size. Their literacy coach (at least in the building we visited) did not work with small groups of children on a regular basis. A true literacy coach does not have the time to do that and the other responsibilities as well. My principal has discussed me becoming a literacy coach if/when the district decides to go that way; she would like to see me continue my Reading Recovery duties and coach, but I'm not sure that's practical either. I think every district has a different idea of what they want their coach to do. If too many duties are put on them, then nothing gets done well. That is my fear.
