Cornelius is a Staff Developer and Educational Consultant.  In that capacity, he works for teachers, school leaders, and leaders of community based organizations to support deep and wide literacy reform in cities (and sometimes villages) across the globe. Whether working with teachers and young people in Singapore, Seattle, or New York City, Cornelius always uses his love for technology, hip hop, and social media to recruit students’ engagement in reading and writing and teachers’ engagement in communities of practice.  As a staff developer, Cornelius draws not only on his years teaching middle school in the Bronx and Brooklyn, but also on times spent skateboarding, shooting hoops, and working with young people.
