I am an Integrated LAR teacher for Alliance City Schools in OH.
I was recently asked to help develop a new department for the "new"
Middle School, starting next school year. The department will be
titled Intervention Assistance and will target non-fiction literacy
and math/science conceptual learning. I was very leery until I became
involved with EMSTAC. Now I know that I will have the support that
I will need to validate the changes needed in my district to help

best part for me about being a Linking Agent is finding possible
solutions for people to look at... This is a great opportunity to
share a lot of information."

involved with EMSTAC … has really opened up a lot of opportunities
not only for me, but, for the county and people in the county, as
far as accessing very valuable information."

"The teachers have truly transformed. I can't tell you how
excited I am to meet with them tomorrow for our last workshop. One
of the BL teachers that didn't feel she needed the training or materials
because after all she 'was a good teacher' and 'spent lots of her
on money on lots of good materials for the students' has made the
statements now how she was just 'superficially teaching reading'
and now she's teaching reading and with an understanding of the
processes. I think just that statement alone has made the whole
entire project worth the efforts."
