What People Say:

 

" I had the opportunity to be in Ms. Lembo's classroom almost every day. I saw her teach her general education classroom while engaging a diverse group of students. One of the things I most enjoyed about being in Ms. Lembo's classroom was seeing her carefully model and scaffold new skills while establishing connections between the classroom lessons and everyday life. This effort on her part, to make the students see that what they were learning was relevant and applicable to their current and future lives, fostered an engaging classroom atmosphere and taught fundamental skills."
