Meet your site coordinator
Conor Fowler is the site coordinator at Cherry Hill Elementary. He runs the reading center and will be your go-to source for any questions you may have during your time as a reading partner. He is always available during your tutoring session to share tips and tricks, review lessons, and help keep your student on track.
Hi, I'm Conor, and this is my second year with Reading Partners and my second year at Cherry Hill Elementary. Before I started working for Reading Partners, I did a few different things: politics, finance, fashion, writing, editing, etc. All of those things were not very rewarding. Eventually, I quit my job, and started volunteering. Of all the places I volunteered, Reading Partners was the best organization, and I felt it allowed me to make the biggest difference in Baltimore. I hope you will walk away from my center and from this school year with a similar opinion. I am extremely excited to start working with all of you.
Meet the Reading Partners team

Her mother, who is a retired English teacher, is equally thrilled that her daughter is helping youngsters to achieve greater academic success through the love of reading!
