- “<Megan Riege> is great. She has listened to us prior to the school year, incorporate our ideas and genuinely cares about his success. We are thrilled with how Hayden is doing thus far and how many great opportunities he is having. I want you to know that her great thinking is being spread and just may make a difference for many others. She created a daily schedule for Hayden of where he goes, what goal he is working on, what is a reinforcer, etc. We love it for him as it keeps him on track, focused, and we can talk to him about his day knowing what it looks like. I shared this with a friend of mine when she was feeling frustrated with her child’s day. She shared it with someone and is asking the teacher to do something similar. This is amazing! We appreciate her doing what is right and what every child deserves. Thank you for hiring her and for blessing Hayden with her as his teacher.”
With the help of PinPoint Home Sales Group with Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Ambassador Real Estate, Westside will recognize a Teacher of the Month throughout the 2018-2019 school year! To nominate a teacher, please CLICK HERE.
