Yvette Pompey

The art of creating new readers

During her lifelong career as a primary school teacher—over thirty-nine years, mostly Grades K to 4—Yvette Pompey’s abiding passion was to lift the literacy level of every child in her class. “My passion for teaching students to read and equipping them with other literacy skills led to successful related outcomes,” says Yvette. At two schools where she taught, she helped establish school libraries, and she volunteered as a librarian during lunchtime and after school. She also sourced children’s books and magazines to establish or rejuvenate the libraries, and she established after-school and weekend reading clubs. Taken together, Yvette’s impact on child literacy has been significant, and rewarding. “I was fortunate to see children’s interest in books soar, and to watch them turn into avid readers.”
