Read Across America
Volunteers for Your Classroom

WOEA-Retired will celebrate NEA’s Read Across America starting March 1 and continuing into the month. We will read to students across the WOEA District. Many retired readers are available to read in classrooms, libraries, or at other events. If you would like to invite a reader or welcome a retired teacher to your classroom, please let us know! Contact Phil Long at 419-733-6947 or by email. We will leave new or used books where we read. The bookplate inside the front cover will say, “Shared by Western Ohio Education Association Retired Members”.


“You’re never too old, too wacky, too wild,
to pick up a book and read with a child.”
