WHY I WROTE THIS BOOK ...Patricia Pickles


"From the perspective of a teacher, principal and superintendent, there are specific illustrations on how to improve student performance, among all subgroups, so that all students meet and even exceed state standards. Provided in the book are proven techniques, strategies, and tactics that are based on experience, research and results."
