MISSION

 

Approach

Boon’s approach is two-fold: to offer free teacher training, to early childhood teachers, in how to foster deep, early literacy skills in children from birth through kindergarten; and, to provide professional development scholarships to teachers of Grades 1-12, helping them to learn explicit, multi-sensory reading instruction skills. We foresee every student being able to read at grade level, an important qualification to achieving academic success, becoming a responsible and contributing citizen, and being prepared to meet the challenges of the 21st century workplace.
