Kick-Off the 2018-19 Year – With Four Special Guests – At the start of each school year; we have a ‘kick off’ meeting to celebrate a new year of tutoring. This presents a GREAT opportunity to meet the Tutors for Kids “players,” perhaps meet your STC, and learn more about tutoring. We did “pack the hall” and it was a great “jump start” to the year.
We invited special guests to participate in this meeting. They were several teachers, from schools where we tutor, who spoke to the group. The teachers were Eileen Badger, Media Specialist at Wildwood Elementary, Karen Strong Grade Four Teacher at Stanton Weirsdale Elementary and Linda LaFond Grade Five Teacher from Fruitland Park Elementary. They discussed a range of topics from “The tests that are used to determine reading levels and how often is it done” to “How our tutors affected your student population”.
