An Affiliate of International Literacy Association
A LETTER FROM THE CHAIRPERSON
Hello to all current and future members. I would like to introduce myself. My name is Debbie Lambeth and I am the Chairperson of the Missouri Literacy Association this year. I am fortunate to be leading an organization that is in the process of renewal and growth. As educators, we are constantly seeking improvement in our craft of teaching and are looking for ways to engage in learning for ourselves. The mission of the Missouri Literacy Association is to empower educators, ensure equity, inspire students, and encourage leaders with the equitable resources needed to make literacy accessible in diverse communities.
As you navigate through your lifelong learning process, consider how a professional organization can support you. The Missouri Literacy Association, an affiliate of The International Literacy, is continuing to grow by connecting educators across the state. We have three regional chapters, St. Louis, Kansas City, and Southwest Missouri. When you become a member of MLA, you automatically become a member of your local chapter at no extra cost. You will not want to miss the professional learning opportunities from national speakers this year and our feature publication The Missouri Reader.
