Caroline Picks “Thank You Teachers“
Caroline says, “Our entire team is grateful for the amazing teachers that get up everyday to change a student’s life. I was fortunate to have a teacher that transformed by education, attitude and goals in 5th grade. Thanks to Mr. Wezeman I realized that every student learns in different ways and at different speeds. He allowed our entire class to choose how and when we focused on projects and subjects. Thank you for the powerful teachers!”

Sarah says, “Writing is one of the greatest skills students can develop for their futures. Finding effective ways to measure, provide feedback and more can move the needle of success for students in the future.”
