Our programming of years past was not enough to reach the unique learning needs of all students, which had a lasting impact on their learning throughout their educational journey.
All teachers, no matter what stage of their career they are at, should feel confident teaching students through research and evidence-based practices.
The progress of students was slow at first, but now we see that our students have developed the tools they need to become independent decoders and readers.
