Mrs. McCulloch is so kind and so patient! (Emphasis on patient when working with a wiggly 7 year old!!) My son’s reading and writing confidence has sky-rocketed and he looks forward to seeing her every week! She has such a kind heart and you can see in everything she does with him that she truly cares! She is part of our family now!
