    Our family is thankful for Ms. Allen every single day. I'll always remember on Jack's first day I received a note from Ms. Allen letting me know that Jack was having an amazing time. I can't tell you the amount of relief I felt after reading that message! She is there to welcome him every morning with a smile and a warm greeting and wishes him well every afternoon. Any time I have a question, she is quick to respond on ClassDojo. After an incident on the playground she quickly called to let me know Jack was ok-using her own cell phone to get in touch- when the regular tools weren't working. Jack truly loves going to school everyday and he always says its because of Ms. Allen. The extended day has been wonderful for Jack and our family- as it allows us one extra hour of work time- but I can only imagine the added challenges and exhaustion for teachers.

She takes time to understand the situation and apply her training and experience to encourage our daughter in a way that is just right for her as an individual. Thank you, Ms. Allen!

    Ms Alvarado has been a star teaching math and number confidence the two years we’ve had her as a Powell teacher for our two children. They both loved going to her class, and she has made learning math this year on line an enjoyable experience. When my daughter grasps a concept after struggling with it , her face lights up and her healthy pride glows. She can’t wait then to try the next problem! Thank you, Ms Alvarado!

    Ms. Alvarado has made it a point to get to know and personally connect with our daughter during virtual learning. She has gone above-and-beyond and literally out of her way to provide 1-1 interactions to help create a great bond and build their relationship. That connection has encouraged our daughter to push herself harder to do her blended learning and contribute to the class. We are very grateful and so appreciative for all that Ms. Alvarado has done for us.
