The ALEA family is mourning the passing our a dear friend and professional colleague, Nea Stewart Dore who died on Saturday, June 28, 2014. Beloved wife of Colin. Nea leaves behind numerous friends and colleagues in the Australian Literacy Educators’ Association, the International Reading Association and Rotary International communities.
A significant aspect of Nea’s major contribution to literacy education in Australia and beyond was based in her deep and passionate belief in the role of literacy in all learning, and in teachers' interest in improving learning.
We will miss you Nea, but we are all the richer for your friendship and for what you has given to our association over almost 40 years.
