Tracy Barber, Principal, Dunn Elementary School

"Research shows that building relationships with students is an effective strategy to increase reading aptitude and achievement.  Additionally, the personal connection you will have with a student is a priceless gift to both the tutor and the learner.

If you are thinking, “I am not sure if I can teach a child to read.”  No worries, the H.U.G. program will equip you with the research-based training you need to ensure the growth and success of each student.  As the principal of Dunn Elementary, I can testify that this program is authentic.  Giving a small amount of your time makes a tremendous difference in developing lifelong readers!"
