I've been in education for over twenty years as a teacher and literacy specialist:)
Immersing students in engaging, collaborative literacy environments with flexible grouping provides opportunities for alternate successes and challenges that will keep them growing year by year!
Letter Excerpt from a Student ~ "Mrs. Leigh, you made my life better when I came into the sixth grade. . . I read on a third grade level and now I read on a sixth grade level. . . I read every day and every night - while I eat, in the tub, in the car, in the doctor's office, and while I'm cooking. . . " ~ Student success is my greatest honor and reward:)
