The Vermont Council on Literacy fosters a love of literacy through authentic engagement and meaningful connection with high quality, diverse texts. We value individuality and autonomy rooted in student interest and educator expertise. We envision an equitable, anti-racist educational literacy community that supports ALL educators in literacy-based professional learning in pursuit of growth and success for all children.
We are an all volunteer organization committed to offering excellent professional development in literacy to the teachers of Vermont. We have brought a host of literacy leaders to Vermont, including Lester Laminack, Katie Wood Ray, Ralph Fletcher, Penny Kittle, Marge Lipson, Barry Lane, Aimee Buckner, Timothy Rasinski, Sara Holbrook, Kathryn Au, Michael Opitz, Donalyn Miller, Gay Su Pinnell, Lucy Calkins, and most recently Jennifer Seravallo and Tanya Lee Stone!
