We are dedicated to providing all of our teachers with the most effective resources available in education. After a few years of investigation and research of their company, I am convinced that Headsprout may have the long-term solution for eliminating illiteracy in our community by building the skills and strategies in those early grades that are so essential to life-long learning. According to virtually all research that I can find, establishing strong reading skills in children before they hit third grade is the best way to give all children a chance for a successful school career and be a contributor to society.
