OUR STAFF

THE

TEAM

Our highly qualified staff is devoted to working with schools and communities to improve the skills of students in reading and literacy. Our evidence-based curriculum, delivered by volunteers from the community, has been found to have a positive and statistically significant impact on different measures of student reading proficiency.
