Mission: To provide literacy professional development, networking, and resources to educators.

This year we are coordinating with MRA's theme "Reading All Stars". As teachers we know it takes a team effort to facilitate students' literacy development. This year we are offering professional development focusing on a team perspective. From family literacy, to integrating technology across the curriculum, this year we have it all!
