A Defining Moment

Kylene Beers never thought that she would teach struggling readers and she never expected to teach in a middle school. After finding a job at a large Houston middle school, she quickly realized that 7th graders could not learn what she hoped to teach them and many could not read at all. She thanks George, a struggling reader, for being her inspiration. She had no idea how to teach him to read, and as time went on, she knew she failed him but didn't want to fail others.
