Marie Biggs
Professor, College of Education
St. Petersburg College
Statement:  My passion and commitment to understand the complexity of the diverse literacy needs for all children and the teachers who teach them, has evolved from more than twenty-five years in diverse settings within the field of education. The highlight of my career occurred when a teacher candidate stated, ANY child can learn (to read) given appropriate and positive guidance, instruction, strategies/skills, and accommodations, during the project Ready-Set-Read that supports the literacy needs of economically disadvantaged children who struggle in their reading.
