First grade teacher, Centerview

No year is the same, no class is the same, no lesson is the same and certainly no student is the same. Everyday, plans change based on what I learned the previous day about my students. It's important to be flexible and find ways to let the students guide the ship sometimes.

Teacher, Centerview

The best part of my day is when the doors open in the morning and students come running in! It's great to see that kids are so excited to be here each day and that they want to get to their class as quick as they can!

Academic Specialist, Centerview

Knowing what the students can and cannot do really drives my instruction. As a reading teacher, I make goals with my students, and we base them on what skills the student is interested in developing as readers. This means everyone in the group has a tailored goal that they are working toward.
