Lighthouse for Literacy

Is there someone on your campus who, while implementing the Common Core Standards, has embraced creativity and innovation to be the inspiration that shines the way for all readers? If there is, we urge you to nominate him or her for the Lighthouse for Literacy Award.

This award, named in honor of the late Dr. Barbara Schmidt, Professor of Education at California State University, Sacramento, is presented each year by the Sacramento Area Reading Association. It recognizes those educators who, through personal example, as well as classroom and school practice, are a Lighthouse for Literacy.Each recipient will be honored, presented with a certificate and SARA membership at a complimentary dinner on April 4, 2019.

This year SARA is looking for nominees from all Sacramento County schools. Don’t miss out on this unique opportunity to celebrate a professional and deserving colleague, educator, or team with positive recognition.
