R2S Volunteer Benefit

Volunteer Comment:


"I could tell by the students enthusiasm of getting the opportunity to work with me that a difference was being made, I don't really "know" what benefit I provided but I do know I watched all the children excel and advance so much throughout the year.  I am truly amazed at the level of competency they showed by the end of the year in reading, writing, thought development and reasoning."


Teacher Comment:  


"Many children were reading above grade level thanks to all the extra reading time they received!"
