Who's Doing the Work?
Welcome to Burkins and Yaris
Our overarching goal at Burkins & Yaris is to assist children in becoming proficient readers and writers. This begins with the people who teach them.
We believe that effective change happens from the inside out. We know that when teachers understand the foundations of how children learn to read and write, they are better equipped to teach students. Teachers need opportunities to learn new techniques and strategies that inform their instruction.
