Sarah joined the Read Write Discover team in 2016 and this summer will be her fifth year with the program! She became involved because she wanted to join a local organization that promoted literacy and heard about Read Write Discover through the San Jose Library. She previously studied Child and Adolescent Development at San Francisco State University. After graduating, she worked in various educational capacities (nonprofit sector, educational field trip programs, public schools, and private schools). She is involved in community outreach and is passionate about free education and educational resources. She currently works in Recruiting Operations at an edtech start up.
Erica is a rising senior at Lynbrook High School. She tutored at the Joyce Ellington Branch last year and is coordinating at Bascom Branch this year. She has enjoyed tutoring younger kids ever since 8th grade and has taken many volunteer opportunities to teach/guide them to the best of her ability and hopes to do the same at RWD this year. On the weekends, you can find her working at a small coffee shop, binging Netflix shows, or taking a long nap!
