Starting as a SMART Coordinator in 2005, I realized I had joined an amazing program for the love of reading. I loved to read and wanted to share that with students at my local elementary school. The volunteers I worked with were amazing! The teachers worked so hard to get as many students that needed that extra help into the program as they could. It was a very positive experience and I miss it so much. I now get to see those students all the time and can tell it impacted their lives in so many ways. WOW! 20 years!
