When we last gathered on March 7, 2020, we all discussed a virus that was rapidly spreading but we had no idea the impact it would have on our families, our friends, our communities, our students, and ourselves. As 2020 progressed, we learned new ways to show resilience, we marveled at the determination of our students to continue their studies, and we all struggled with and later celebrated success over the digital landscape!
Since 2004, the Metroplex Literacy Conference has brought you the best in innovative, engaging, and classroom-tested instruction and professional development. It is an opportunity to meet new colleagues, to share ideas, and to come away emboldened to advocate for our adult learners. This year, we wanted to bring you something a little different, but something of immense value to our friends working in adult education classrooms throughout North Texas.
We are partnering with our friends and statewide advocates at Literacy Texas to bring you fresh and new perspectives from unique parts of the state. We encourage you join us for virtual full-day symposiums from the South Texas Literacy Coalition (February 20th) and the East Texas Literacy Council (February 27th). The two completely free events are not to be missed.
While we will miss the smiles and camaraderie by not seeing you in-person this March, know that your friends at HOPE Literacy, Dallas Baptist Association, Literacy ConneXus and Tarrant Literacy Coalition will be back and better than ever in 2022 – mark your calendars for March 5!
See you in 2022,The Metroplex Literacy Conference Planning Team: Harry, Lester, Chelsie and Wes
