LitLife Latin America

LitLife Latin America began with three simple words… “words are powerful.”

Our ability to read words is powerful.
Our ability to write words is powerful.
Our ability to say words is powerful.

In 2013, Vincent Ventura and Pam and Jim Allyn entered a new chapter of professional development opportunities for the Latin American community. Marrying the outstanding work of LitLife and Vincent’s practical international school experience, LitLife Latin America was born. Based out of Monterrey, México, LitLife Latin America’s primary goal is to provide high quality professional development to Latin American students, parents, teachers and administrators.

Words are Powerful in International Schools

LitLife Latin America’s primary goal is to support all Latin American international schools in the area of literacy. We take into consideration the unique challenges of an international school, such as teacher retention, sustainability, resources, and parental involvement, to name a few. LitLife Latin America facilitates the adoption and/or enhancement of a literacy initiative.

Words are Powerful in Early Childhood

Establishing a solid literacy foundation is crucial. The first pillars of literacy in schools begin with the earliest students in the early childhood years. LitLife Latin America supports teachers in creating curriculum and adopting literacy methodology that encompasses best practice for all students, particularly the earliest learners.

Words are Powerful with Early Language Learners

LitLife Latin America celebrates the acquisition of another language, and therefore understands the strengths and stretches of working with a large ELL population. By providing individualized support through curriculum development and coaching, LitLife Latin America empowers ELL learners.

Words are Powerful with the Primary Years Program

Many international schools have adopted the Primary Years Program. LitLife Latin America is well prepared to support the adoption of the Primary Years Program with Balanced Literacy. Marrying the best of both approaches provides success to all students.
