“I have been helping my student develop his reading abilities, love for reading, and conversation skills. I dedicate one lunch break a week to spend time in his classroom reading, sounding out new words, and talking about our week!

This is an incredibly refreshing organization that brings light into even my most stressful weeks – and hopefully his, too!”
