Meet Kirsten Gum! Kirsten tutors at the Fairborn Community Library and taught at Fairborn Intermediate for five years. She taught two years in fifth grade and three years in fourth grade.
I had the chance to discuss Level Up with Kirsten.
What made you want to tutor at GCPL?
I took this year off from teaching to be at home with my son. Tutoring is a great way for me to get back into the “classroom” and help the kids in our community while still being able to stay home with my son during the day.
To you, what makes Level Up tutoring such an important library program for the community?
Level Up is a great program for all students, from those who may have gaps in learning due to COVID, to those who struggle with certain subjects, or simply those who need a little extra help on homework.
What’s a student success story you can share?
I have had the privilege of helping a second-grade boy from Fairborn schools. He struggles with phonics and reading. We have been working on vowel sounds and blends. He has improved greatly over the last three months. He is now to the point where he is correcting himself without being prompted.
