Presenter: Dr. Kymyona Burk

Join our Literacy Partners on Tuesday, November 22nd, for a deep dive into strategies for the State of Oregon. Children’s Institute’s CEO, Kali Thorne Ladd, will facilitate a conversation with Dr. Kymyona Burk about what other states have done to improve K-12 literacy. Presented in partnership with Oregon Kids Read and Our Children Oregon, we’ll explore:

  • Literacy strategies that connect Birth-5 and K-12 efforts
  • Professional learning for educators on the science of reading
  • The role of literacy coaches
  • The role of higher education in teacher preparation
  • Statewide investment strategies in literacy

Kymyona Burk is a senior policy fellow at ExcelinEd. She supports states pursuing a comprehensive approach to K-3 reading policy by assisting state leaders in building new or improving existing K-3 reading policies, with a heavy focus on supporting successful policy implementation. Dr. Burk most recently served in Mississippi as the executive director for the Jackson Public School District’s Office of Teaching and Learning and led all aspects of the district’s instructional programming. Prior to this, she was the state literacy director at the Mississippi Department of Education where she led the implementation of Mississippi’s Literacy-Based Promotion Act.
