Hello all!

Do you know someone who would love to help our students improve their reading skills? 

Basswood Elementary is now searching for Minnesota Reading Corps tutors for the 2018-19 school year! And I need your help spreading the word with your networks. We have the following positions open for next school year:  1 full time K focus tutor (9 hours a day), 1 full time plus K-3 Literacy Tutor (9 hours a day), 1 full time Literacy Tutor (7 hours) and 1 part time K-3 Literacy Tutor (5 hours a day)

Tutors come from many backgrounds and include recent high school and college grads, career changers, stay-at-home parents/grandparents, and retirees. They receive extensive training, and coaching support.  In return for their service, tutors earn a living allowance, education award, federal student loan forbearance, and other benefits.

This tutor is a specially-trained AmeriCorps member who will work with students needing a boost to catch up to grade level in reading. Students served by this evidence-based program experience strong growth – in their test scores, other school work, and confidence. Last year, Reading Corps served more than 20,000 Minnesota students in schools throughout the state - including Basswood Elementary!

If you or someone you know might enjoy making a difference in the lives of Basswood Elementary students, the application can be found here.  Positions are available throughout the 2018-19 school year.
