Mrs. Sanders has got to be one of the best and most patient teachers in utah. My son is in her 2nd grade class and is way behind the curve on reading and writing. When the school year started Nicholas could not read any better than he could when he left kindergarten. is first grade teacher was great, and did a lot, but he was just not able to grasp the concepts, and my wife and I tried everything we could over the summer to help him but it seemed nothing was helping as much as we had hoped, then Mrs. Sanders came along, she has spent a lot of 1 on 1 time with Nicholas during class reading time, she’s spent many hours of her own time trying to bring him along. We’ve seen some of the things she does special for him and cant beleive what patience she must have to be able to do these things with him over and over again, and she is seeing results. The thing that showed me and my wife the most that she was able to make progress, is our son wrote us a letter for the first time, on his own last weekend, and gave it to us with the biggest grin on his face. The letter was wonderful, a lot of the words were spelled incorrectly, but phonetically they were spot on, he wrote down how he felt about my wife and I and told us he loved us in his letter, he filled the page with words, we were amazed, and at the bottom we saw, “P.S., Mrs. Sanders is a great teacher” – that one sentence alone is worth the world to us, I cant beleive what she has been able to do and accomplish in such a short amount of time. Mrs. Sanders deserves some recognition, there’s no way Nicholas is the only child she has helped.

Thanks!
