Principal Erin Roche Supports Boundless Readers

Longtime educator Erin Roche, principal of Prescott Magnet Cluster School in Chicago, which focuses on writing and literature, recognizes the importance of Boundless Readers, founded as The Rochelle Lee Fund to Make Reading a Part of Children’s Lives in 1988. Rochelle Lee, who taught in Chicago Public Schools for more than two decades and served as a librarian, had a knack for instilling in children a love of reading, the mission of Boundless Readers that Erin Roche and numerous other educators support.

For the national Big Read program, Boundless Readers created a variety of bilingual activities to interest students of public schools in Chicago, as well as their families and community members. Erin Roche and his fellow supporters of the group embrace its belief that good reading habits are essential to the process of learning and succeeding throughout life and that teachers play a crucial role in raising the bar in urban education and in developing devoted readers.
