A teacher’s viewpoint on STAIR…
“Do we have STAIR today?” It’s a question I hear daily, and my students celebrate when I can answer “yes.” It’s no small feat to create excitement over reading and learning among second graders who struggle in school. Yet, year after year, that’s what STAIR does. With STAIR, students’ literacy improves, and they form meaningful bonds with their adult tutors. The care and individualized attention the weekly program provides for these learners has immeasurable effects. Academically, STAIR reinforces reading skills with one-on-one support so second graders can flourish. Teachers only wish all students could participate in STAIR!
