I was very fortunate to have been introduced to Reading Horizons very early in my teaching career. My first two years as an educator, I was still trying to find my style, and I worked very hard to make our current phonics program enjoyable. My students just weren’t getting excited about reading new words. During my 3rd year, we adopted RH. It is so easy to create an engaged environment when using RH strategies. I found confidence in myself and my instruction, and my students are thrilled to pull out dry erase boards and practice our skills. Seeing my students excited about reading new words, and being successful in doing so, makes me feel like I’m more effectively fulfilling my calling, thanks to Reading Horizons!
