Since 1956, the International Reading Association has been a nonprofit, global network of individuals and institutions committed to worldwide literacy. More than 53,000 members strong, the association supports literacy professionals through a wide range of resources, advocacy efforts, volunteerism, and professional development activities.
To that end, IRA is accepting applications for the 2018 Regie Routman Teacher Recognition grant.
Through the program, a grant of $2,500 will be awarded to an outstanding elementary school classroom teacher dedicated to improving the teaching and learning of reading and writing across the curriculum in grades K-6.
To be eligible, teachers must be an IRA member, and at least 60 percent of his/her school’s students must be eligible for free or reduced lunch.
See the IRA website for complete program guidelines and application instructions.
