The Portland Reading Council board wants to celebrate the literacy work of educators in our region. Even efforts that seem small can be very significant for students.
Please take a moment to nominate a literacy educator (teacher, reading specialist, librarian, educational assistant, parent volunteer, etc.) who you believe is making a difference for students.
We will send a “heard about your good work” email to the educator you nominate and to their principal/supervisor, and will follow up with a special certificate created in their honor.
Please fill out this form: Literacy Shout Out
