NEOEA-Retired will be celebrating NEA’s Read Across America starting on March 1 and continuing into the month. We will read to students across NEOEA. Many retired readers are available to read in classrooms, libraries, or at other events. If you would like to invite a reader or welcome a retired teacher to your classroom, please let us know!
We will leave new and used books where we read. The bookplate inside the front cover will say, “Shared by North Eastern Ohio Education Association Retired Members 2017.”
Remember — “You’re never too old, too wacky, too wild, to pick up a book and read with a child.” — Dr. Seuss
To invite a reader or welcome a retired teacher to your classroom, please contact Beryl Burkle, NEOEA-R’s Read Across America Chairperson, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 330-659-3928.
Join our worthwhile reading endeavor for children as a reader for an active teacher’s students. Spread the joy of reading! For more information about Read Across America and ideas for Read Across America projects you can implement at your school, go to nea.org/grants/886.htm.
