My goal is for each of my students to learn and succeed in all areas of their life; however, it is a cumulative effort from the teacher, the student, and the parent/guardian. When working together, the possibilities are endless. The class directly addresses individual needs through whole group instruction, instructional software, independent reading of high interest fiction and nonfiction books, differentiated instruction, and small group instruction
