What a Sweet Celebration! 

03.20.2023 Team

This month we’re celebrating Tymisha Sweet and her 10-year anniversary of working with Raising a Reader. You may know her as your program manager, as the master of RAR Town Halls or builder of partnerships. She is all that and so much more! 

Every day, Tymisha supports Affiliates in implementing Raising a Reader programs. Connecting with Affiliates and hearing about the creative ways Affiliates support families in their communities keeps her going.   

Ty loves spending time with her family, taking naps and roller skating. One of her favorite books from the RAR library is I Am Perfectly Designed by Karamo Brown. “I love hearing my husband read it to my son.” She also notes, “Don’t Touch My Hair is also a favorite with a great message about respecting boundaries.” 

We are grateful for Tymisha’s 10 years of dedication to not only Raising a Reader, but dedication to children and families across the country!
