Teacher Comment:

"...a new comer from Mexico got enrolled in my second grade bilingual class. The student's academic level was lower than Kindergarten level in both reading and writing. In need of intervention, I arranged it for my student to be a part of Mrs. Esparza's intervention group. After working with her for about six weeks, my student learned 20 new letters and their sounds."
