After the training on Multi-Tiered System of Supports (MTSS) and Intervention Resources, we celebrate success:
"Thank you again for all of the information and training during the summer. I have implemented ideas from the intervention resources/sites. Even though it's only the 2nd week of school, I have seen progress in my students. I was really concerned about a particular student with a severe challenge in Phonics/ Reading. I took your advice and administered an assessment to identify specific needs and found a way to generate a word bank/list for him from the list of resource suggestions you provided. Amazingly, this little boy obtained a perfect score on his first Spelling Test...EVER!!!!!!! He initiates games with other students as a method of practicing words and Reading, something he has never done. He was able to read and comprehend a small passage from a story and was ecstatic (so was I).
Today, I celebrate his success and more to come!!! Thank you both!!! In appreciation of your time, talent and service to children, RaVonda Butler - Tri-L Christian Academy "
After the Bringing Words to Life training, we celebrate success:
"I enjoyed the seminar and learned so much. The seminar was a good length and moved along smoothly. Yesterday I had an opportunity to put into practice what was learned at the seminar. We began our day by reading the book, First Day Jitters, and I had picked out vocabulary words ahead of time to introduce to the students. They were very receptive but later in the day one of my students put his new knowledge into practice. We were returning from the playground and I remarked on how many of the children were "sweaty" because it was hot outside. One boy said, "yes, and my hands are clammy." "Clammy" was one of the words we had learned that morning! I want to thank your team for the time and preparation you put into preparing for the seminar. I am anxious to continue "bringing words to life" this school year! Sincerely, Cindy Skeen - Trinity Christian School "
