Charlene Davis is a K-8, Literacy Coach in Brooklyn, N.Y. and has been teaching, and staff developing for many years.  She has a love for helping teachers take new risks to reach higher goals!  She experiences the greatest thrills from seeing youngsters “get it” and become confident about their abilities to achieve!   
She has taught second and third-grade, and often assists teachers with topics ranging from Balanced Literacy, to Classroom Management.  She intends to never forget what it was like to be in the classroom, and therefore, is unafraid to pitch in wherever needed…whenever possible.
