    My role is about more than increasing math scores. It is allowing my students to see their potential as great thinkers and problem solvers. When I hear my students say, “Wow! That was easy,” or “Oh, I know this!” it is music to my ears.

    Jennifer Spellacy, Math Corps Tutor — Saint Joseph

  • Reading Corps Works

    Minnesota Reading Corps has been a key partner in our efforts to ensure all students are reading well by third grade. Data from the NORC study confirms that their strong early learning supports and interventions get great results for kids, and set them on a path for continued academic success.
