Transform instruction so that every student excels!

Teachers matter. In fact, a good teacher has two to three times the impact of any other school factor.* That’s why we at the National Literacy Institute focus on improving instructional practices so that all students receive the support and the high-quality equitable instruction they need to achieve.

The National Literacy Institute works with school leaders to design and implement a customized, multi-year professional learning plan that includes a combination of workshops, job-embedded professional learning, curriculum implementation, and support so that evidence-based instruction takes root and leads to lasting change.


Since we opened our doors in 2003, the NLPDC has been helping teachers helping students fulfill their potential. We do this through personalized and tailored professional development sessions, working hand-in-hand with the student’s classroom teachers for the most efficient learning.

The ability to READ, WRITE, and COMMUNICATE connects people and empowers them to achieve things they never thought possible.

Dr. Haynes, AKA Dr. DJ Ing was a joy this summer.  We learned a lot and laugh a lot.

I have never in my life attended a more powerful and engaging Institute.  After two days of training, I was so excited to return to my class and begin teaching reading.
