Judy Sutherland – Third Grade Team Leader

In the words of Dr. Seuss, “The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.”  Reading with children helps set them up for success. It helps to exercise their brains and to develop language skills as well as their imagination and creativity.  At Lift we have opportunity to provide one-on-one reading time between each child and a volunteer.  What a joy it is to see relationships develop between them in addition to some amazing growth in the kids’ reading skills!
