Dear WSRA members,

Welcome to another year of leadership, advocacy, and professional learning through the Wisconsin State Reading Association. As this year’s president, I want to thank you for all you do to promote effective literacy instruction for students in Wisconsin. In this constantly changing world, we urgently need educators who understand the complexity of literacy, continually build expertise to help students use language meaningfully to survive and thrive, and advocate for policies that support literacy learning for all.

Since you are a member of WSRA, you must know the importance of building your own knowledge base through reading professional materials, attending workshops, and taking classes. You certainly know that you need to  “Do Your Own Thing” to keep up with what is current in the field of literacy and to implement literacy practices in classrooms. But, by joining this professional organization, you must realize that personal PD and doing your own thing in your classroom behind a closed door can only take you so far.
