Marvin Wright Reading Program
May 17, 2017
This fall, for the fourth consecutive year, Station Hill will be providing Marvin Wright Elementary with reading tutors to help in the classrooms. Here are some testimonials from teachers we have worked with in the past:
"Mrs. Parker comes to our room during reading. The students love getting a turn to read with her in a small group. The time she spends with us is very special. The students always love making cards for her. She is like our adopted grandma. We are so thankful for the time she shares with us in first grade!"
"I had a wonderful experience with Ms. Peacock from Station Hill. She did a great job reading with some of my stronger readers. She made her visits fun and exciting by using different strategies such as read-alouds and reader's theater to keep my students engaged and entertained. A great experience overall!"
"Mrs. Carothers was my volunteer and she was wonderful! She was especially helpful with my new student who speaks limited English. I found out she was fluent in Spanish and she was able to find out some important things about him that he couldn't tell me. She truly was a blessing in our classroom and I have made a very dear friend!"
"One of the greatest blessings of the week is when Mr. Parker comes to my classroom. He brings joy every time he steps through our doors. When he walks through the door, my students interrupt class and say, "CAN IT BE MY TURN TO READ WITH MR. PARKER?" He not only supports my students; his warmth and kindness make my day brighter. Some people think 'giving' means the giving of money, but he gives much more - he gives his time, kindness and a listening ear. His simple smile and a few encouraging words helped me throughout the year to be a better teacher."
"Mrs. Chris is such a kind and caring lady who has made an impact on my classroom. Every time she walks in the door the entire class shouts, 'Mrs. Chris is here!!' She has touched the lives of each child in my class and helped to instill a love of reading in them all. We love our Mrs. Chris!"
