Our goal this year is to help educators discover or reinforce ways they can advocate for literacy for themselves, their classrooms, and their communities. One way for us to do that is by building our Twitter life (@AdvocacyTALE). Each month we are focusing on one aspect of literacy and sending out tweets. In May, we are focusing on summer reading - something that is sure to see a change during all of the COVID-19 distance learning. Another part of that is a potential partnership with Raise Your Hand Texas to help educators expand their understanding of advocating for our selves.
We would also like to welcome several new members to our committee: Jayne Latty, Bonnie Reyes, and Elena Guerrero. If you would like to be involved in our work, please email us: firstname.lastname@example.org
