Nicole Evans Jones, principal of Fred Armon Toomer Elementary School in Atlanta sent along this great thank you note and permission to share it:
"Many thanks to Responsive Classroom for the most AMAZING first day of school that I have experienced as a principal. I truly believe the success that our kids and teachers experienced today was due to the paradigm shift that began with the Responsive Classroom training and continued throughout our pre-planning."
Best wishes to all of you who are starting a new school year with Responsive Classroom practices as part of your teaching toolkit!
