Pam is featured widely in traditional press and on social media as a literacy expert for both families and educators speaking to the power of education and literacy to transform lives and to create gender and racial equity and participatory citizenship in every child.

In here keynote address - Equity, Excellence and Empathy - Pam will share how literacy is a power unto itself that confers upon children the opportunity to achieve in every subject area.
