In her own words: “I tell my students repeatedly that my job is to help them learn what to do so that they can read any book they want on their own. I am so passionate about students becoming independent readers that I often get more excited than they do over their accomplishments!”

“I believe that standardized testing is consuming too much time and money in the educational system. The fundamental truth that children develop and learn at different rates is not taken into consideration.”

She has a natural way of meeting their needs and delivering instruction that is appropriate and individualized.” Terrace Elementary Principal April Blanco
