Literacy Consultant, Professional Development Provider, and Writer.

About Me

Linda S Bausch, literary consultant, professional development provider, and write.Dr. Linda Bausch, Ed.D.

I am a certified literacy specialist, a former classroom teacher, and a college professor at Dowling College, NY. I have taught pre-k at Small Wonders Pre-K and was a literacy teacher in the Shoreham Wading River School District, located on Long Island. In addition to being a teacher and professor, I am a writer of educational articles, units of study and a book on literacy and gender. I have been a literacy consultant and professional development provider in New York, North Carolina, South Carolina, Texas, and Florida.

My work in the processes of reading and writing is grounded in research on evidenced-based teaching (Petty, 2014). I believe balanced instruction must always be predicated in authentic assessment practices. My instructional methodology draws upon the gradual release of responsibility model (Pearson & Gallagher, 1983) and Rosenblatt’s (1939) Transactional Theory of Literacy. In my work I offer practical support as a classroom teacher, literacy specialist, and professor. I have taught in pre-K-12 classrooms and I know the importance of receiving targeted professional development that is explicit in the skills and strategies of proficient literacy practices (Calkins, 2015).  I work closely with teachers and school leaders before any professional development begins to ensure that each workshop is tailored to meet the specific needs and standards of the teachers, administrators, and most importantly the students.  Finally, I will work with schools to support the entire literacy curriculum and I will lead lab-sites during each school visit.  If you are interested in my services or wish to schedule a workshop, please contact me.
