Maroon and Old imageCollege roommates in the late 60's at Central Michigan University, these three award-winning teachers have re-connected in their "retirement" to take literacy on the road. Maroon and Old is a spin-off on their school colors and chronological age. But, these three ladies are anything but old!

Eunice Wollin-Crockett has done much of her teaching in American History and the language arts area with gifted students in Traverse City, MI. She initiated and led award-winning students to state and national competitions for National History Day, and she is a founding board member of the Women's History Project in Northwest Michigan.

Christine (Nowak) Heerlein has been a reading specialist, language development teacher, gifted educator and has completed administration certification in the St Louis, MO area. She has taught all grade levels and all ability levels.

Anna Unkovich spent 31 years teaching life issues to teens in Michigan, but her recent "claim to fame" is the release of three books entitled Chicken Soup for the Soul in the Classroom (Elementary, Middle School, High School editions, 2007). Her most recent book is
Magic Moments: This Worked for Me, (2010), and is available ONLY through this site.

Together, these women hope to "light a fire for literacy."

Their presentation might be:

• A 20-60 minute talk to inspire you to use the power of stories to teach.

• An hour or two of strategies to motivate "gifted" or "challenged" students.

• A half- or full-day, hands-on workshop to provide tools to improve reading comprehension.

• Whatever your literacy needs, Maroon and Old will tailor their presentations to meet them.

• This dynamic literacy trio will share their personal stories, their humor, their 40 years of friendship, their teaching talent, and their passion!.
