Ada Ukonu, Reading Buddy!

| September 7, 2010

Hello my name is Ada Ukonu and I am a new addition to the Reading and Math Buddies program. I am currently pursing my MA in Clinical Psych at Teacher’s College with the goal of receiving my PhD in the field. In addition, I plan to pursue a concentration in African American Studies. I believe that this will enable me to critically look at and better understand some of the issues that persist in the minority community. I have been working with children for many years in both clinical and private settings but primarily in the realm of education. As a result, I have seen many bright and promising children fall in between the “cracks”. I am delighted to have been given the opportunity to become a reading buddy as I hope to be part of a competent team of individuals devoted to helping children develop the necessary skills for success.
