Ways to Give

Click here to learn more about why investing in young readers is so critical, and join in our fight for every student’s right to a quality education by making a donation today.

I became a teacher to help give back to my community and provide every student I teach with the same learning opportunities as any other student from a more privileged background. Having grown up and gone to a public school in the same neighborhood as my students, I have the hope that one day my students will reach their true potential and fulfill their dreams just as I was fortunate enough to do. Reading In Motion has been a light in my life because it has given me the tools to help my students in their journeys to success. Thank you for bringing the program into my classroom.
