STAAR Days

A big thank you for all that you do for the students. I know that we place a lot of emphasis on preparing the students for the STAAR test. But remember, that all the planning, teaching, reteaching, rotations, pull-outs, after-school and Saturday tutoring has helped students in more than just preparing them for the test. It has helped them see that their teacher is a caring and compassionate person who wants them to succeed in all aspects of their lives.


Again, thanks for all that you do. Have a great weekend and RELAX! Hope you enjoy this video.
