About

This Reading Specialist and Supervisor program from Rutgers University is designed for individuals who wish to receive the Reading Specialist Certification along with a Supervisor’s certificate to work as a reading/literacy specialist, coach, basic skills teacher, or supervisor in public and private schools grades K through 12.

Overview

In order to be eligible for the Reading Specialist/Supervision certificates, program graduates must have an initial New Jersey teaching certification with two years of full-time experience as a classroom teacher to be eligible for Reading Specialist certification and three years to be eligible for the Supervisor certification.
