9/25/18 show – Books have been a part of my life from way before I could read. I love reading so much I even walked out of school in first grade because I thought they weren’t going to teach me how to read. You’ll have to read my book for the details though. Today I want to focus on my guest and how she is helping increase literacy around the world.
Without literacy you would not be reading this episode summary nor would I be able to do my show each week. Smartphones would not exist nor would most of the resources we take for granted today. Yet a large portion of the world cannot read at even a basic grade level and in some countries women are still not allowed to go to school.
Enter Kathryn Starke, Global Literacy advocate. Her goal is to help schools achieve literacy success while making it fun for their students of all ages.
Take a listen as we discuss how you can be a literacy advocate, how Kathryn has built a global business around literacy and how anyone can “Tackle Reading” in their community or around the world.
