Office Hours

In an increasing digital world that has been further catalyzed by the pandemic, promoting reading among our youth can sometimes taken a backseat to other distractions. As we celebrate Read Across America Day, we take a moment to reflect upon the importance of reading and discuss strategies for both parents and educators to help foster a love of literature among children.

This episode of Office Hours welcomes Traci Browder (Intelligogy The Podcast), Charles Williams (The Counter Narrative Podcast), Allison DePuy (CIO, Inspired Classroom), and Dr. Cristóbol Saldaña (Assistant Principal, Los Fresnos High School).
