Martha is WHRO's Early Childhood Coordinator and is out in the community with our Raising the Reader Van sharing her passion of help kids not only learn to read, but to develop a love of reading. Her enthusiasm is not only evident as you watch her working with young readers, but it is contagious. She has the ability to connect personally with not just the kids, but parents and teachers too as she helps them learn ways to promote reading with their children and use new technology. She has made hundreds of visits to Title 1 schools to and shared her excitement for learning with hundreds of young students. We at WHRO have no doubt that because of the love and passion she has for her job she has not only made a difference in kids’ lives, that she has made the Hampton Roads Community a better place.
