What is the Missouri Association of Reading Recovery Educators?
 
The Missouri Association of Reading Recovery Educators (MARRE).  is an organization dedicated to establishing a network of those educators directly involved in the Reading Recovery program.  The letters of the association's name "MARRE", which, if pronounced phonetically, elicits the first name of the founder of the Reading Recovery program, Dr. Marie Clay.
 
Why "Reading Recovery Educators" and not just "Teachers"?
 
The Reading Recovery Teacher is the key to the program, but the association needs to provide a network for the support team...teacher leaders, site coordinators, administrators, and others.
 
What plans does the association have?
 
MARRE develops plans from the ideas of its membership.  Newsletters are published that allow a sharing of what is taking place statewide in Missouri's movement toward full implementation of Reading Recovery.  In addition, the association plans an annual spring conference to further establish the network, and foster the cross-feed of ideas statewide.
Long range, the association will help to lobby for state assistance in the financial support of Reading Recovery training efforts, inservice, and awareness activities.
