Thank You

A big thank you to all who presented, attended, and supported the 19th UCF College of Education & Human Performance Literacy Symposium on April 7, 2017.

We had 650+ K-20 educators attend from all over Florida and several other states. Thank you for joining us at UCF to connect, share, and learn more about K-12 instructional literacy interventions!

We hope that you enjoyed the professional learning day. We look forward to seeing you next year, on April 6, 2018, as we celebrate the 20th year of the literacy symposium.

Best wishes with the remainder of the academic year and thank you for all you do to support all students' literacy needs!

Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world;
indeed, it's the only thing that ever has.
