Everybody Wins! USA
September 16, 2010

During the time I was organizing The America Reads Challenge I organized the U. S. Department of Education's partnership with Everybody Wins! for two years and served as a volunteer myself. I also periodically read with Senators Kennedy and Jeffords and their students. I watched this program light a fire in children's eyes regarding that tough subject called "reading"...it became exciting and they were eager each week after a while to show me how they were reading so much better and also understood what they were reading! I now serve as the President of Reading Is Fundamental (RIF) and work in collaboration with Everybody Wins; some RIF staff serve as Everybody Wins volunteers.
