A few months ago, I had the privilege of presenting a reading fundamentals workshop at Adobe. This past week, I had the pleasure of being invited again, this time to present a reading comprehension workshop for parents of 2nd grade to 6th grade students.
Interacting with parents at Adobe has been amazing. They eagerly ask questions about how reading strategies would apply in their home situation. Workshop participants also contribute to the conversation by giving suggestions and tips from their own experience to their colleagues. With an environment that is supportive and collaborative, it's not a surprise that Adobe is consistently named one of Fortune's 100 Best Companies to Work For and People's Companies That Care, among many other accolades.
