Moira and Beth met 20 years ago and were both teachers in the same school. They went on to work together as administrators, yet remained friends as their professional careers took them in different directions. Both ladies have a love of teaching with technology and have been presenting on this topic for over 5 year for the Illinois Reading Council Conference and school disricts in Illinois!
Moira has been in education for 27 years. She taught at the middle school level and was an administrator as well.

Global Pencil Project
For our international project we collect pencils or $1.00 at our events.
How do I help? It is simple! Donate new pencils at one of our FVRC events (number 2 preferred, but colored pencils acceptable) and we will ship the pencils to children in Kenya, Ethiopia, and Guatemala through the Pencil Project Organization.
Help us make a difference and supply pencils/school supplies to needy students in other parts of the world! Thank you in advance for supporting literacy worldwide!
