It is the mission of New York Association of Reading Lovers to promote excellence in reading, teaching and learning throughout New York State; provide leadership in staff development; build a community of staff developers; advocate for innovation and experimentation; and influence policy and legislation which support our objectives.
Last year’s conference was located in the beautiful Southern Tier at Holiday Valley Resort in Ellicottville. The surroundings are ideal to relax and immerse you in the learning opportunities offered.
Participants could spend one full day with Heidi Hayes Jacobs focused on curriculum mapping, the conference focus the year before, and could talk about the use of technology to facilitate such. One of the two days participants were having a choice between three halfway sessions, choosing two, one for the morning session and one for the afternoon session.
