“Every child deserves a champion: an adult who will never give up on them, who understands the power of connection and insists that they become the best they can possibly be.”  Rita Pierson, 2013

Dr. Patricia Braun, adjunct faculty for the Department of Teacher Education, was recently inducted into the Illinois Reading Council Hall of Fame at the 2017 IRC Annual Conference.  This award was developed to “recognize significant contributions to reading or reading education.”  We are proud to count Dr. Braun as a member of our Department!
