Dear ReadWorks Creators and Designers:

Thanks so much for placing such a powerful tool into the hands of each educator.

Upon receiving the first e-mail regarding ReadWorks, I was ecstatic and I started using the passages immediately (after I registered of course) and even shared my findings with a member of our 4th grade team.
