Join TheEdCollab family as an Associate member.

A rigorous, two-year commitment to contributing to and learning with the organization.

The heart of The Educator Collaborative is our think tank. This group brings together a diversity of literacy educator identities, expertise, and experience. Our think tank is composed of K-12 literacy-focused educators in a variety of roles, including classroom teachers, coaches, administrators, library media specialists, college-level teacher educators, authors, consultants, and more.

Started in 2018, the “Associate” role is a rigorous, two-year commitment to learning with and contributing to the learning of the organization. “Associate” is a role as a junior member, somewhat akin to an internship, that provides you the opportunity to be an active member of our think tank and to help lead our collective work forward.

We especially encourage literacy-related classroom teachers, as well as all literacy-related educators from historically underrepresented groups, to apply.
