During my daughter's 1st grade year the teacher at the time did nothing to support her & get her ready for 2nd grade. During 2nd grade she struggled more to the point of the teacher, counselor, & Project Reading Teacher and myself reviewed what could be done for her. I as a parent wanted to keep her back in 2nd grade but the teacher felt she would get bored with 2nd grade. That was a mistake & now she is struggling even more with her reading, comprehension, & phonics. They have put together a 6week plan that is to help her improve with her reading area. I think it's a little to late......I am really considering keeping her back in 3rd grade. What other resources is available to help her reach her goal & move on to 4th grade with out struggling? Please Help.......concerned parent!

Mrs. Shimabuku encourages her student to learn in a fun but disciplined way. She is a positve educator. And very approachable to students and parents alike.
