The Power of a Teacher

"Knowing how to read changes a person's life, and you make that happen every day!Barbara Teter, International Reading Association



I received this e-mail this week and was impressed by the simplicity and the truth of the statement.  As we move forward, trying to reach all students in all content areas, we need to keep this in mind.  We often get overwhelmed by all of the demands on us.


Here is a link to English Companion created by Jim Burke, renowned author and literacy expert.  It is free.   


I hope you will find it is a place you can ask questions, share ideas and receive support from a larger community that shares the common goal of literacy for all.
