The summers are busy for this Charlotte teacher.
When Courtney Blosser is not in her first grade classroom, she is busy at a Charlotte YMCA.
"If you can offer them any extra support than you should do that," said Blosser.
Last summer, she signed up be a teacher volunteer for the Y readers program.
The Huntintowne Elementary School teacher volunteered six weeks and fell in love with her job.
"I love reading," said Blosser.
"I want our children to love reading and I think that for some of our struggling readers that is an amazing program."
The YMCA's Y Reader's program is just one month away.
"This summer we are going to be located at 10 schools across the greater Charlotte area," said Blair Campbell, YMCA communications and partnerships specialist.
The program preps students for the next reading level and helps struggling readers retain information usually lost over the summer.
