GiGi’s Playhouse Tampa Virtual Literacy Sessions Were a HIT!
By Anjali Shah
In the midst of an unprecedented summer facing the COVID-19 pandemic, Gigi’s Playhouse Tampa, FL worked diligently and proudly to create something beautiful. Despite the challenges many of us have faced in the past year, our staff at Gigi’s Tampa had one common goal in mind – to provide the best educational and interactive experience for our students. A special thanks goes to our determined and hard-working Literacy Coordinator, Evelyn Mazur, for all of her hard work in transitioning our free in-person literacy tutoring program into a virtual format. Thank you to all of our Literacy Tutors, as well, for their dedication and compassion when teaching virtually that made these sessions a hit!
