Testimonials that Speak to the Advantages of Peer-Based Respect for Learning

The other day I tutored in the first grade classroom. I felt I learned so much about the kids - that we'd connected. Nervous at first, they loosened up quickly. The next day, I saw one in the hallway, said hello and had a brief chat about our reading. It dawned on me how rare it is to have deep connections through all levels at the school and how hard it must be to get that type of togetherness at another school. It's just one of the things that makes us so fortunate.

My classmates are both close friends and academic motivators. Since we know and care about each other, and because we share the same broader goals in the classroom, it feels natural and normal to inspire and lead one another.
