PHARR - Pharr-San Juan-Alamo ISD (PSJA ISD) Superintendent of Schools Dr. Jorge L. Arredondo recently contributed an article for the National Council of English Teachers’ (NCTE) English Journal titled Literacy’s Alive in a Tapestry: Engaging Our teachers, Librarians, and Students, published this month.  

 

For more than 100 years, NCTE has worked with its members to offer journals, publications, and resources; to further the voice and expertise of educators as advocates for their students at the local and federal levels; and to share lesson ideas, research, and teaching strategies through its Annual Convention and other professional learning events. 

 

As a former English Teacher in Houston, Texas, Dr. Arredondo shared the impact literacy had on his life as a student and throughout his teaching career. In his article, published in the March 2021 issue of the English Journal, the Superintendent also highlighted the districtwide efforts to promote literacy in PSJA ISD. 

 

“Literacy played a significant role in my life, so I know first-hand the impact and value it has for all of our students,” said Dr. Arredondo. “It’s an honor to contribute this article to an award-winning publication and also discuss the important work being done at PSJA ISD to ensure our students have the support and resources necessary to achieve the highest levels of success.”
