Heather Sadler

Heather Sadler – Professor of Literacy at the University of New England had a few comments about literacy and the importance of reading to children from birth. Asking questions when they get a little older is good idea also, to promote a little creative thinking.
Heather hit upon the thought that she is actually “Training Rotarians” in her position.  She teaches students to identify problems then find a solution for it – which seems like exactly what Rotary does.
Heather reports that there is a pretty significant “word gap” between upper and lower income people, and programs like the one Mila works at helps to solve the problem.
Ask questions – it helps kids think!
