Our Partners

Working with Seema and The Literacy Architects was extremely smooth: Seema was able to very easily understand the project, knew the content at an expert level, and even made the aims of the project more robust than we originally intended. She worked on a rigorous timeline and the final project was an exemplar for other asynchronous learning in our district.

Mary Clayman

Director, DC Reading Clinic, District of Columbia Public Schools

Seema and The Literacy Architects have been assisting me as a literacy consultant for the past two years with the TEA SSI/Community Partnerships initiative. She has participated at several state-level conferences by presenting literacy information in break out sessions, and she has provided instructional strategies and resources through webinars. She is a very valuable professional with the expertise to engage school leaders and teachers with change and improvement efforts. Her work with the school districts that I support has yielded improved literacy practices and outcomes for children. I highly recommend her to support school districts with effective literacy practices. She is awesome!

Dr. Harold Wright

Director, Texas Education Agency

Seema has supported Leading Educators with school leader and master teacher coaching in Detroit Public Schools. She has also been instrumental in designing and facilitating professional development for teachers across the country. Her content is relevant, engaging and turnkey — teachers often leave her sessions with actionable practices to use immediately. Seema’s literacy expertise and partnership with Leading Educators has been invaluable. I look forward to working with her again in the near future!

Former Managing Director of Networks, Leading Educators

“We needed a good communicator to work with the different organizations and someone who would be able to convene us and our thoughts in a cohesive manner. Seema won the hearts and minds of project participants, was able to make thoughtful suggestions about the resources and trainings that would have the most impact on students, and planned and executed fulfilling volunteer projects for the corporate community. As a result of Seema’s help and her familiarity with the inner workings of school systems, students in underserved schools had better access to reading materials and an opportunity to get and/or stay on grade level in reading.”
