Start The Adventure in Reading

Oh many of you have learned about STAIR Birmingham from reading my blog these many years. Yesterday I made two STAIR site visits, Oliver Elementary and Avondale United Methodist Church, for photos. When I walked into the big hall at Avondale, from across the room I heard, "Hey Ms. Jones!".  Considering I've been retired over 7 years, I was thrilled she recognized me.  I taught her brother in third grade and he's a junior at Homewood High now, and she is a STAIR tutor. Filled my heart!

This student's tutor told me she is making terrific progress in her second language. I know how hard learning a new language is and so proud of this sweet girl.

It is great to be remembered. And reading is truly an adventure.
