SASD Staff Lead State-wide Reading Convention

On February 5, 6 and 7, 2009, approximately 2,400 educators from across the state of Wisconsin participated in the Wisconsin State Reading Association's annual reading convention in Milwaukee. This year's convention was chaired by Reading Specialist at Urban Middle School, Thomas Lueschow.

Lueschow currently serves as vice president of WSRA's Executive Committee and will be president in two years.

Working collaboratively with Lueschow was Traci Breit, reading specialist at Horace Mann Middle School, who served as the program chair, and Lynne Hagley, reading specialist at Sheboygan South High School, who served as the registration chair.

In addition to the leadership roles Sheboygan's reading specialists had, nine of the district's reading specialists, as well as a few of its teachers, introduced speakers at the convention.

Again this year, Winnie Huebsch, reading, language arts and world languages coordinator for the Sheboygan Area School District, gave an insightful presentation. This year's presentation was entitled: Best Practices in Reading for the Disabled or Special Education Student at the Elementary Level. Huebsch's presentation had "standing room only" attendance.

The WSRA has over 3,000 members and leaders within the organization. Its annual conventions are regarded by the International Reading Association and Wisconsin's State Superintendent, Elizabeth Burmaster, as a premier staff development opportunity within the state and the country.
