Story from:

Pat Ehm, Lane County

I have been a volunteer reader in the SMART program for 10 years. I was reading at Fairfield Elementary school for seven years, and the last three years at Cesar Chavez. I enjoy the one-on-one time with each child. It’s rewarding seeing their reading skills improve as the year progresses. It is also fun to see their excitement when they get to pick a book every two weeks and take it home. One boy I read with couldn’t believe he could keep the book he chose. The SMART program is well worth our time as volunteers.
