speakerWhat People Are Saying

I strive to make lessons reflect research-based instruction. I enjoy the brief moments that I get with each individual student. It is my goal to fill those moments with not only knowledge, but deep understanding. I know that a student can truly be successful if they are actively engaged in learning. For this reason I endeavor to make my lessons hands-on and practical so my students will absorb the concepts. -- Virginia Phipps
