Elly Seavey has been a public school educator for thirty-eight years. During her tenure as staff developer, consultant and mentor, she has facilitated system-wide incentives in the area of literacy that impact the whole community. With student waiting lists for model programs such as Morning Reading Partners, Readers Lunch Café, Reader’s Theater and Parents as Partners, Elly puts into practice her belief that the acquisition of early literacy skills and continued development is a shared collaboration between school and home. Her commitment to this belief is demonstrated by the opportunities and environment created under her leadership.
