Kids Need to Read is honored to announce the addition of Teacher Jessica Payne to the organization’s Board of Directors. Payne has been volunteering regularly with Kids Need to Read for two years, often making stuffed reading buddies to give to children and creating handmade items to raise donations for the organization. She can frequently be found volunteering at many of the organization’s events.
Payne has been teaching high school literature for twelve years. She is passionate about her work with the students, and about the literature that she teaches. She graduated from Northern Arizona University in 2004 with a degree in Secondary English Education and an extended major in English. She is a voracious reader who strongly believes that reading for pleasure should be a part of every student’s life every day. Payne believes strongly in the power of community service. She has created service projects for her students to help make many of the reading buddies that she has donated to the organization.
Kids Need to Read warmly welcomes Ms. Payne to the Board of Directors. Her skills will be invaluable as Kids Need to Read continues to help disadvantaged children succeed through literacy.
