Belief Statement


As trained reading professionals we believe that every student should experience the power of reading to transform their lives. 

Our mission and passion is to create readers and writers for life.

We believe in the power of guiding student choice to increase engagement, motivation and achievement.

We believe students need ample opportunity to have regular practice with whole books and develop the stamina to read them.

We believe that every student needs multiple opportunities to read independently, deeply and critically with a variety of texts.

We believe in allowing students to engage in collaborative, thoughtful, and purposeful discussions with their peers.

We believe it is our work as educators to understand the habits, interests and challenges of the individual readers who enter our classrooms and provide depth and complexity of reading that will create lifelong readers and writers.
