We look forward to meeting you!!
I wanted to thank Karen and Phyllis for making our daughter's transition into first grade so smooth and, basically, non-existant. Since the begining of first grade, she has shown nothing but superior performance, academically and socially. On her first spelling test, she got 101%?! I asked her how that's possible and she said that her teacher told her that she not only got all the words correct but her work is also very neat. She continues to get 101%. When the school tested her reading skills at the begining of school year, she tested at level "J", which is, we were told, where the students are supposed to be at the end of school year. Needless to say, we are very proud. She is also taking a full advantage of her academic performance and was assigned to help students who have trouble reading.
Barbara and Sharon - I thank you immensly for making our son who he is today. Remember his humor? He still got it, just got much more sophisticated. Remember his math skills? He is performing two grades ahead. He can read words that I cannot and remember things that I don't recall ever occuring. He is one of the four third-graders who participate in the Academically Gifted Program at his elementary school. He has an honor and benefit of working with a teacher, who, I am sure you heard, reaceived PA's 2014 teacher of the year award. He loves working with him. When I hear our son talk I often think to myself "this is Mrs. Barbara. She always encouraged questions and curiosity". He continues to ask questions relentlessy and often sends me to the Internet to search for answers. Experience that our children had at Montessori has proven invaluable to my family. I am forever thankful to all of you for what you instilled in my children. I hope they will carry it with them for many years to come.
