On behalf of UELMA I hope everyone has a wonderful break. Lets end this 2020 year and start 2021 in good spirits.
It is true. UELMA tried to get Jason Reynolds to our conference this year but he had other plans. All is not lost though. Here is an opportunity for YOU to submit a proposal to have him at “your event”!
(an excerpt is below) Please visit the whole story at www.everychildareader.net
“Reynolds will meet with students virtually* in small, underserved communities across the country during the second year of his two-year term to have meaningful discussions with young people. Through his platform, GRAB THE MIC: Tell Your Story, he will connect with, listen to, and empower students in these communities to share their own stories and start their journey as storytellers. “
It is happening! Members should have recently received an e-mail this AM about our annual conference. It is on March 5th and happening at “your location.”
If you did not get the e-mail have no fear! All the information is here as well. Check your junk or spam folders and make sure you ARE on our mailing list. (Sign up is on the right side.)
Below are the links to what you need. Please read the e-mail details first.
