“The driving force in my classroom is for students to understand that the Lord has uniquely created them with a purpose and design for their lives. I want each student to know that they are valued, their life matters and that they possess great potential. The goal of NILD Educational Therapy is to help students develop tools of independent learning in the classroom and in life. Students are trained to view themselves as competent and confident learners.”
