Sophie Trecker   

Prior to joining Litlife, Sophie worked as a teacher for many years at the elementary level in Manhattan’s district 2.  During this time she had the opportunity to work alongside leaders in the area of literacy and develop her skills as a classroom teacher.  She has worked with diverse groups of children at various grade levels and her classrooms often served as labsite classrooms for professional development. While being a classroom teacher, Sophie served as grade leader and literacy leader.  After leaving the classroom, Sophie has worked as a consultant in the New York and New Jersey area.  Her work has focused on supporting teachers and students develop effective reading and writing workshops in the classroom. Recently her work has focused around implementation of the Common Core State Standards.  Sophie has mentored teachers who are new to teaching as well as highly experienced teachers.  Sophie has also worked as a supervisor in the Curriculum and Teaching department at Teachers College; she worked with student teachers to develop and implement curriculum in various grade levels.  In addition to mentoring student teachers with curriculum, she observed them throughout the semester and provided feedback to help improve their teaching skills. Sophie received a Bachelors of Arts degree in English from the University of Wisconsin and a Master of Arts degree in Elementary Education from Teachers College, Columbia University.
