Conference Sessions

The International Reading Association 1999 conference was held in May in San Diego, CA.

We heard from our award winners at the San Diego conference, where they were the presenters at the RETA SIG session Tuesday, May 4. Joining us were the Chula Vista Children’s Choir, conducted by RETA member Deanna Joy Hastings. We learned about their unique approaches and were inspired by their stories of success.
