Reading Specialist, Silver Hill Horace Mann Charter School, Haverhill

“The greatest belief I have about my students is they all can achieve. It is our responsibility as educators to take our students from where they are academically and help them make achievable gains no matter how large or small. The light in their eyes of students as they realize they can read makes all the effort worthwhile. It is our responsibility to provide an education that is reachable through best practices. No child should ever be made to feel that their ideas and efforts are not valued. Each chance to educate is a step forward in the future of that child.”
