Their constant contact with the parents & having a good, solid relationship between the parents & child together helps build confidence & security. Because of there being no stress, each student is more able to focus on their work. The "work" is fun learning, at least in my opinion based on my sons experiences.
They set goals that are reasonable & age-appropriate. When the child reaches that goal (eg., reading an entire book in an allotted time), they're rewarded with a good grade & appropriate, confidence-building praise
Positive reinforcement is always issued to a student for their behavior & their work. Even if they've done wrong, the matter is handled with respect & integrity. Treating a person with respect helps them to learn how to treat others with respect.
Each staff member of this school is attentive to the needs of each and every student. They teach them so well that you not only have smart children, you have confident young men & women going out into the world, able to depend on themselves.
As much as I appreciate each of my sons teachers, I'd have to say that Mrs. Cheryl Catts is my favorite. She has a way to get through to any student, even when they're having a difficult time. The moment she begins to see a student struggle, she speaks to him privately, helps explain things to him as much as possible & gives him the tools he needs to succeed.
She also takes the time to keep in constant contact with the parents of her students. This way, as soon as a struggle is noted, Mrs. Catts is already setting a plan in motion for us to work together so her student never falls behind the curriculum. My son feels very comfortable & confident because of her. For that, I'll always be grateful. Successful & organized teachers such as Mrs. C help build successful & organized grown ups for our future. That extra time she takes makes all the difference in a child's' life.
