With a new distance learning situation and all the stresses that come with it, I kept the heart of my pedagogy: learning opportunities that are personal, relevant, and authentic. In my view these are the big three lenses that encourage literacy and create confident writers.
Creating partnerships with other state organizations
Continuing to be the "go to" organization for educational issues regarding literacy
Supporting Professionals in their Growth
Providing ongoing, sustainable professional development to the educators in Michigan
