“One of the best things that happened to me was watching children begin to change their voices when they came to different punctuation marks. Then at our celebration several parents thanked me for all my help and said they noticed how their child understood what punctuation marks mean in a sentence. It was very rewarding to know students are using what they learn in Springboard at home.”

“So many parents want to help and see their children growing academically but do not know where to start. After coming to the parent workshops, though, they leave having specific skills to work on with their child that they know will work! Knowing they are doing the “right thing” is so empowering to parents and I love that I am able to give that to them.”

“Springboard is an excellent program which enhances children’s reading skills. I have met the most wonderful students and parents through Springboard. Helping my students grow and gain confidence in their reading abilities is why I continue to come back each summer to this program.”
