‘Women Who Write’.

Imagiread’s philosophy is ‘rooted in the belief that positive interactive experiences with literacy through early childhood and into the academic years is how strong educational values are developed. At Imagiread we customize literacy instruction for today’s inquisitive learner. We read, we play, we learn and we explore in environments that are inclusive and individually rewarding’.

March is here already! In just a few more weeks we will be celebrating Spring weather complete with new blooms and tons of sunshine just for reading outdoors. With so much to read we thought it would be good to take a look at some of the women who not only inspire us to read but also contribute to the projects that we enjoy. There are millions of incredible women to celebrate, and we’re planning to do just that this month by introducing our Imagireading family to who they are, where they are, and precisely what they do.

The idea stemmed from an event we held a few years back entitled Women with Wings. It featured two powerhouse women who are veterans with incredible stories to tell. Both of them were authors, and both of them were awarded by the White House for intensive community engagement initiatives. The event was so well received that we contemplated doing more to celebrate women during March but of course, got busy with facilitating programming. Until now.
