Before I went into the Read Right Program, I hated reading. I hated it when the teachers would call on me to read, because I knew my reading wasn’t very good. So, I took Read Right not because I wanted to, but because I had to. The Read Right Program taught me how to feel comfortable when I read and helped me to understand the things I read. Read Right gave me confidence. Now, I take pride in reading, and I’m no longer afraid to read when asked.
