Hello literacy world!
I realize that not too long ago I wrote a farewell blog for FLC, but I have since returned with a new role within the organization. I will be the Resource Specialist/Americorps VISTA Supervisor. I will be assisting Yari with the blog and other social media platforms until we hire our next VISTA. I am very excited to be back with the Florida Literacy Coalition. Literacy is important to me because it is the basis for helping someone succeed in life. Everyone defines success differently, but being able to read gives one the freedom to understand and think for themselves. You are able to learn from a variety of sources instead of relying on what someone else tells you. You can also advance yourself into the career of your dreams. Literacy opens up many doors and I’m excited to be part of a team that values, promotes and advocates for the irradiation of illiteracy. My goal for helping with this blog is to help you, our reader, find new and interesting ways to teach literacy with your students and to remind you why you continue to do what you do.
I look forward to being part of the conversation again 🙂
