READING AHEAD

Summer Literacy Enrichment Camps

Reading & Learning Should Be FUN!

As a Literacy Specialist for Chesterfield County Public Schools, I know how important it is our children continue reading and writing over the summer months and I'd like to help your child enjoy doing so this summer. I have a Masters degree in Reading and have been teaching for over 20 years and recently achieved National Board Certification in Literacy/Language Arts.

I offer summer enrichment camps in my home and I’d enjoy the opportunity to teach your child this summer and foster a love of reading/learning. For more information, please contact me, Rhonda Burch, at rhemma@comcast.net or 909-4571.
