Congratulations to Brantley Salers, our March 2023 Rising Star!
Brantley was nominated by Carre Klein, who had the following to say:
"I would like to nominate my student Brantley Salers. He is a 3rd grader at O'Neill Elementary. This year he has been responsible to wear his BAHA hearing aid EVERY DAY. Last year he hated it and would never wear it. This year he is seeing the benefit and understands why it can help him. He is also VERY helpful in the classroom making sure the speaker system is on and ready to go, when the teacher should mute it and plugs it in each night. Brantley also has been using Visual Phonics the past 2 years and I love seeing the light bulb go off when he uses Visual Phonics to decode a difficult word with ease! He is a rising star in his class this year and deserves to be recognized."
