Michigan Reading Association
Promoting Literacy Across Michigan
Many of us look at the month of January as a re-boot for our year, however I look at September as a re-boot. This is a time for us to get back to routines, meet new students, prepare new lessons and ideas, and of course to take time for ourselves. Fall is my favorite time of year. I often spend time reading on the weekends as I cuddle with a cup of hot cider and piece of anything pumpkin.
Effective professional learning is the foundation of a successful school district. Typically, opportunities for individuals and/or groups to attend professional learning experiences are based on the correlation between the professional learning experience and the district’s school improvement goals.
For those staff members requesting to attend Michigan Reading Association’s conferences and workshops, be sure to plan ahead and allocate funding early. MRA’s Annual and Summer Conferences are great ways to connect your district plan goals with the research and skills needed to teach ALL students!
