“When my second grade son was struggling to read, but excelling in all other areas of school, we as parents were a bit baffled as to what was going on. Mrs. Bolingbroke personally reached out to me and discussed all the ways she thought we could help him. After going over all the options, she expressed how much faith she had in my son and how she believed he could catch up to his peers. She offered to have my son stay after school and be personally tutored by her everyday. She did this out of the kindness of her heart. She isn’t getting extra pay or extra accolades. She is just a fantastic human and teacher who believes in a little boy and wants to see him succeed. I have never met a teacher with the kids success as her number one goal, as much as Mrs. Bolingbroke. She deserves all the “good teacher” awards and praise. She is a saint and of course my son is rapidly improving with her fantastic methods and efforts! Thank you Mrs. Bolingbroke!”
