Christy Curran is an independent literacy consultant for schools in the United States and around the world. Her recent international experience includes working with schools in Bonn, Cairo, Muscat, and Zurich.
She was a classroom teacher for nine years before joining the Teachers College Reading and Writing Project in 2006, and left TCRWP in 2014 to become an independent consultant.
Her literacy work in hundreds of schools around the world became the inspiration for her blog, http://www.coachactually.wordpress.com , which she launched with her former TCRWP colleague Monique Knight.
In addition to her consulting, she provides support through her blog and on Twitter (@christy_curran) to leaders, literacy coaches, and teachers around the world in this extremely important job of lifting teachers up and encouraging them in the teaching of literacy.
