Quotes from the Session:

“As a special education teacher, I have discovered that kids LOVE to track their own data/progress…even their DIBELS scores!”

“I always tell my students that I learn as much, if not more, from incorrect answers as from correct answers.”

“What Sharnell is saying now is so true. “

“Thank you Sharnell and Tim and ‘text chat’ conversations.  Excellent resources – I look forward to sharing with the rest of our leadership team.”
