S9 Episode 16: Advancing Literacy in Arizona with Sophie Allen-Etchart
Sophie Allen-Etchart’s passion for literacy led her to create an Arizona organization to help develop a love of reading and learning in Arizona students.
In today’s episode of 3Ps in a Pod, hosts Danielle and Kathleen welcome Allen-Etchardt to the podcast to talk about the impact of literacy comprehension and the work of the organization she leads, Read Better Be Better. Allen-Etchart shares about Read Better Be Better’s work, how it has advanced since its start in 2014, and the meaningful change growing out of this work. She also talks about how the organization pivoted from providing an in-person after-school program to an at-home program because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
