Meet Liliana Burleson, literacy liaison

Liliana Burleson has a deep love for literacy, and thanks to a grant from the United Way of Midland, she serves as a literacy liaison at Milam Elementary. Students in Liliana's class get small-group and one-on-one supplemental reading instruction, which is intended to jumpstart their literacy proficiency. The United Way of Midland is focused on strengthening students' literacy skills and supporting teachers, which coincides with Midland ISD's goal to have more students on grade-level reading, United Way of Midland's Jane Hellinghausen says, adding that Station scores indicate skills increase among students who work with a literacy liaison.

We thank United Way of Midland for helping our students succeed, and we thank Liliana for working hard to improve literacy at Milam!
