Our evening with Tanny was, to no surprise, AMAZING! The evening was filled to the brim with new insights, thoughts, suggestions and a wealth of wonderful lesson ideas! You can not help but be filled with excitement for teaching when you are in her presence! NCRA is thrilled that we were able to share Tanny with our members. She is truly an inspiration!

Recently, North Central Reading Association honored Sumner County students who were recognized through the Elizabeth Brashears Celebrate Literacy contest. Every year, the Tennessee Reading Association sponsors the "Elizabeth Brashears Celebrate Literacy Awards Program." "Celebrate Literacy" is a writing contest that promotes creative writing. Students in grades prek-12 may submit original books to their local council. Books are judged at the local level, and the winners are submitted to the state competition.  Sumner County had 14 young authors who received recognition at the state level. NCRA and Sumner County are so proud of these young authors.
