Diane Amos- Read to Succeed
Read to Succeed (R2S) is a volunteer based, non profit, literacy organization. Our mission is to bring children in grades K-3 from low-literacy homes in the ACSS up to grade level by the end of 3rd grade. We are committed volunteers who have been trained by a Master Teacher in a multi-sensory, phonics based curriculum, and offer one on one coaching at the schools 2x/week for 45 minute sessions. This programs gets results and we love it! For more info go to: r2sasheville.org
Susanne Metcalf - The First 2000 Days
There are only 2,000 days between the time a baby is born and when that child shows up for the first day of kindergarten. Experiences during these 2,000 days have a lasting impact on later learning, health and success. This is because children’s earliest experiences literally determine how their brains are wired; lay the groundwork for future health; and form the foundation of the social and emotional skills needed for academic and workplace success. With quality early childhood education, children will be school ready; have higher graduation rates and grow into productive citizens and valuable employees. The First 2000 Days message is about sharing the importance of early childhood development in our state through public speaking engagements promoting the importance of the first 2000 days in their professional and personal networks.
We look forward to having you join us.
