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. Note: Think Tanks typically take place on the first Thursday of each month in the evenings, in U.S. EST.

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