Chonnie knows the importance of reading with children as she has 2 of her own whom she has taught the love of reading. She has 2 daughters who attend school at AES and AMS. Both of her girls are strong readers and love it. She started volunteering for Read with Me because she wanted to share the same love with kids she works with. She believes that reading is so valuable for every aspect of your life. Chonnie humbly shared that one of her best character traits is that she enjoys helping others! When Chonnie isn't loving on her own family or Read with Me kids, she is running her own gardening and home management business that she has run since the early 90s. Chonnie moved here 26 years ago when she came for a visit and never left! One fun fact about Chonnie... she and her family travel to Italy every year and have lots of friends there! Chonnie, thanks for giving back to kids kids at AES!
