Entering the education world a little later in life has benefited my students and parents as I have been on both sides of the table. I have raised three children, each one with very different needs. I taught 5th grade for many years before moving to the middle school. I have taught 6th and 7th grade for multiple years at AVM. This has given me the advantage of knowing what was taught in 5th grade and what my students need to know for 7th grade and life.
The best educational gift you can give your child is time to read for at least 5 out of 7 days a week. Reading is a life skill that can only help your child become more successful.
