Volunteer Comment:


"The students benefited from having another adult interested in their education and their lives. It allowed the teacher to split the reading groups into smaller groups to allow for more specific instruction for students. We also pulled kids out individually to read and do vocab words - which helped them a lot."


Teacher Comment:  


"We used our volunteers as an extra reading intervention during the middle of our year. Many students improved significantly."
