Stephanie P, 3rd Grade

Stephanie has been at our Bristol Street site for the last two years. She has the perfect answer when asked what her favorite part about New Haven Reads is: “the books!” By working with her tutors, Sana and Valerie, she has improved her reading ability and her confidence in pronunciation, all while having a great time every week. When asked to describe New Haven Reads, Stephanie chose “fun” and “happy.” She explains, “Every week, we get to read our tutors stories, and then we get to play some games with them at the end, too!”

At the end of the conversation, Stephanie adds, “New Haven Reads makes me appreciate and enjoy all of the reading and math that I do. It makes me feel better.” Students like Stephanie make us feel great, too! We are so proud of her commitment and improvement week after week.
