Tessa Berens became a Minnesota Reading Corps member because she fell in love with working with schools and kids struggling to overcome an education gap. By working directly with students and teachers, she enhances the classroom experience and provides her students an average of 90 minutes of extra one-on-one tutoring each week.
“Minnesota Reading Corps is an essential component of our strategy for accelerating learning. Their track record of improving literacy outcomes for struggling readers creates the foundation that is absolutely necessary for lifelong learning.”
— Dr. Brenda Cassellius, Commissioner, MN Department of Education
