K-2 Teacher in Manassas, Virginia
I am currently a K-2nd grade teacher located in Manassas, Virginia.I have been teaching for 25 years and am very excited with the results that have come from piloting the CPR program. I have been blown away with the progress that my 2nd grade students have made! After about 6-8 weeks of CPR instruction, Student 1 had a 28% gain, Student 2 had a 30% gain, and Student 3 had a 20% gain.
As you can imagine, I was very excited about the increased growth in my students’ reading abilities. A few months later after testing again, Student 1 continued to make steady progress, but Students 2 and 3 were amazingly reading almost at grade level! I really believe CPR is vital and should be used by teachers across the NAD. It has really helped my students grow in reading! The parents are equally excited and very thankful. All three of the boys in my intervention class are very proud of their increased growth in reading. One parent told me that her son is picking up books constantly now and even reading his Bible regularly. This is a child who fought to read last year. I highly recommend this program! It is fun, challenging, and really teaches kids to read!
