I am a teacher with a minor in reading. I have assisted nuimerous individuals in their reading and math skills. Some from jobs I have had and several by volunteering.
One 14 year old young man wanted to read better before he began high school. He and I spent 4 hours a day for an entire summer working on his reading skills. He asked for my assistance having, a 3rd grade reading level. He began high school with a 9th grade reading level.
He is now a senior and has avoided getting in any trouble. I am proud of his effort and tenacity to reach a milestone in his life. His dad also passed away in his freshman year.
I volunteered in a 3rd grade classroom about 25 hours a week. At the beginning of the year 14 students were not proficient in their reading skills. At the end of the year 6 had not reached the proficient level but all had improved.
I have worked with numerous adults in gaining their GED and computer skills for jobs. These were part of a job that I had, not volunteering.
I believe in people and their desire to reach goal to improve their lives. A little help is worth it to see them suceed.
I will send anyone who donates $1,000 a cup with a picture of the finished truck or a mug with the budget projected and actual cost on it. Your choice! Thanks
