In this episode, our teacher panelists, Katherine Sokolowski, Beth Shaum, and Alex Corbitt speak to author, speaker, and overall literacy expert Donalyn Miller about what teachers can do to help create better access to books as well as the value of the teacher who is a reader and writer and the role that literacy plays in democracy. We also learn about what books Donalyn has loved and what she is excited to read next.
