Reading Pals is a great program aimed to see every child enter 7th grade reading at grade level, equipped with the tools they need to learn and to engage as citizen steward of their community. Kelly Gibbons from Farmers Insurance, Brad Jacobson's Office, gave us insight about what it's like to change the life of a child.
"Reading Pals is by far one of my favorite hours of the week. It's an amazing opportunity to have one-on-one time with the students to invest in their reading skills. Seeing their reading confidence improve has been one of the greatest rewards. For example, a little girl I read with last year went from being very shy and not wanting to read at all, to running into the classroom yelling my name and really excited about reading by the end of the year. Such a great feeling and experience!"
Through one-on-one tutoring, you can give a child the opportunity to have an excellent education.
