“As a teacher in a Jewish day school, it is heartbreaking to watch a student struggling academically. I remember one student. His frown was permanent, his eyes never shone and his shoulders slumped. But, after a few weeks of receiving high-quality interventions and seeing his consistent progress, he transformed completely. This child developed a sense of confidence and pride, infused with motivation and purpose. ‘I can’t believe it,’ he whispered to me, ‘I can read!’ And with that statement, his shoulders lifted, his eyes twinkled and he permanently beamed. This is the most inspirational experience a teacher can ever be a part of.”
Right now, over 1,250 students in Jewish day schools benefit from programs that provide individualized support and monitoring to help them succeed.
