A Message From Conference Co-Chairs


Nikki Piper

Tiffany Young

Dr. Tiffany Young

Dear 2021 Virtual Series Attendees, Speakers, and Sponsors, 

We extend to you our warmest thanks for your investment and support of Nebraska students’ literacy learning. Over the past five weeks, we have been delighted to spend our Thursday evenings with each of you as we learned about setting up conditions for all students to learn, selecting quality multicultural literature, teaching remotely, building a strong reading foundation, and creating digital learning environments. We left the sessions feeling energized about our collective work in the area of literacy and we hope this excitement was shared with you across our increasingly comfortable and flexible format of digital learning. 

If you are a member and you were unable to attend these sessions live you can access the handouts in thmember resources section.  

We look forward to seeing many of you at next year’s conference in Kearney, NE from February 24-25 where we can celebrate together all of the good work you are doing for students. 

With our deepest gratitude, 

Nikki Piper and Tiffany Young
