Teacher turnover rates are a looming problem that puts stress and pressure on schools and districts. The rates grow when considering the number of special educators that leave the profession every year. Then add a national pandemic into the mix. In parallel, overwhelming evidence shows that teachers are ill prepared for teaching reading when they exit their pre-service programs and enter the workforce. This combination of staggering facts leads to the need to build a culture of reading by equipping educators with the knowledge and skills needed to address the most critical skill that underpins every aspect of education—reading!

This recorded edWebinar will:

  • Illuminate why understanding the science behind reading instruction is critical for every educator in every classroom
  • Explain the nuanced factors that can lead to teacher dissatisfaction
  • Provide resources to help mitigate the factors that lead to teacher turnover when reading is concerned

This recorded edWebinar will be of interest to preK-12 teachers and school and district leaders.


Terrie NolandAbout the Presenter

Listen. Learn. Teach. It’s that simple. Terrie Noland uses this philosophy as an innovator and a motivator, and it’s evident as she leads, coaches and mentors thousands of K-12 educators about the science of reading each year. She has a unique perspective on the need to unify all stakeholders around a vision for education to smash the reading divide for the millions of struggling readers. Her daily mission is to add value to educators to help influence transformational changes in school districts across the country by addressing the needs of marginalized students. Terrie seeks to share her expertise and passion, to encourage, and to illuminate a path towards success and measurable outcomes.

If you looked at Terrie’s resume, you would be confused. Her undergraduate and graduate degree work placed her in the field of criminal justice. However, it was through continuous listening and learning that led her on a journey in education starting out in preschool teaching and administration, then becoming a Certified Academic Language Practitioner (CALP), and currently working towards a Ph.D. in literacy and educational leadership from St. John’s University. Terrie is also a John Maxwell certified speaker and coach.

As Vice President of Educator Initiatives at Learning Ally, Terrie works to ignite enthusiasm and excitement by building champion educators and administrators on creating cultures of literacy and learning.
