Expertise Matters

 Literacy excellence requires educators to think, continually learn, and relentlessly strive to recognize and address the needs of all students. As teachers who are readers and writers, we know that we use language to survive and thrive as human beings living together on this planet. We need to shift our mindsets to move forward from superficial notions of individual excellence to collective wisdom and expertise for living full, rich, purposeful lives. When you join WSRA, you’ll be joining the best minds in literacy education. WSRA is where excellence meets excellence. 

 Volunteers MAKE the WSRA events flourish! 

What is in it for you - besides building a professional network, having fun, and adding leadership experience to your portfolio? 

WSRA appreciates the volunteers who give of their time at the WSRA events, such as the upcoming #wsra19 conference, Literacy Excellence: Equity, Engagement, and Empowerment. Members of local reading councils can earn $10 per hour for their council by volunteering at the check-in on Wednesday (Feb. 6) evening from 5:00 to 9:00 p.m. The Registration Committee is also looking for volunteer help on Thursday (Feb. 7) and Friday (Feb. 8) mornings from 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m.  You don't have to be a member of a local council to volunteer at the conference. But, the councils would love to have you!
