Steacy’s career began in the Grade 1 classroom, where she became passionate about helping children develop a love of reading. Later, as a literacy consultant, Steacy became inspired by a movement to ensure every child could read by the end of third grade, setting them up for success in school and in life. It became her mission to help all children read with confidence and joy, and this was the driving vision of Calgary Reads. 

 

What began as a volunteer reading tutor program in just two schools is now a vibrant reading movement that reaches children, families and educators in so many ways. As a reading champion possibilitarian, and placemaker, one of Steacy’s proudest achievements is The Little Red Reading House, a magical home that lets children experience the joy of family reading time and the power of book ownership.
