WRS Certified Teacher Conference

The Wilson Reading System® (WRS) Certified Teacher Conference was created exclusively for WRS Level I and Level II Certified educators who are dedicated to expanding their knowledge and practice.

  • Learn “big picture” research and theory about significant educational topics from leading experts, including Barbara Wilson.
  • Strengthen your instructional skills in interactive sessions led by master educators who understand teachers’ challenges.
  • Re-energize your passion for teaching by connecting with a community of WRS-certified peers and exchanging ideas.

The next WRS Certified Teacher Conference is scheduled for July 2022 as a hybrid event (see below for details). This conference offers a wonderful opportunity for teachers to share their Wilson experiences and gather information relevant to their unique needs, which they then can put into practice with students.
