Emily, you are such a dedicated teacher and it makes me so glad to know that you're working with our youth everyday, pushing them to achieve and grow. It's great to see that you are using data to quantify your class' improvement and to show your students a wonderful way to measure their success.

Wow-this teacher has created high expectations in a supportive environment to help kids achieve. They know the goal and where they are in comparison to the goal. The teacher motivates every student to succeed in not just third grade but in life. I want my kids in this teacher

The data in this video speaks for itself. Clearly this teacher is using inspiring methods not only help her students make enormous gains, but prepare them for a mindset of what it means to be college ready. Very impressed, Ms. Volkert!

Love the way this teacher is using multiple forms of communication - from verbal, written and visual - to help the 3rd graders understand their goals and achievements. Love the tree idea too!
