  1. Geography is important and every child is special and a genius in his/her own way. If you know where to look, then everyone is a genius.

    You cannot tell a fish he is dumb because he cannot climb trees. It’s the same with students. In order for them to be geniuses, you must know how to discover their potential and allow them to grow at their own pace.

  2. My Kindergarten parents will love the Ready to Read resource. Especially because my students are ready to read right now!

  3. I like the info on the autoimmune disease as we have students who have this type of diseases in their families.
