  • Reviewed by Parent/Guardian on August 26, 2010
  • Rating: 5 (5 / 5) Flag as inappropriate
  • My daughter is currently in second grade and I am so excited with my daughter's teacher. She is very creative and has all her students eager to learn. She requires my daughter to think, and she guides her to correct answers without simply giving them the answer. My daughter wants to learn, and she is eager to go to her classroom everyday.She is remarkably young to be so skilled.
