"The patience exhibited by Sadie while my students read to her was outstanding! She allowed the children to pet her, lie on her, kiss her, and made them feel safe, secure, and valued. Her presence provided an encouraging, welcoming, and loving environment where disabilities became abilities. I am so grateful for the positive impact Sadie had upon my students, and I eagerly look forward to continuing the Nor'wester Readers program next year."
