Educator creates positive environment for students

Educator Denise Morelli was first motivated to pursue a career helping children in special education as a student struggling with a reading disability. During her tenure as a reading specialist, she used a Dr. Seuss theme to create a positive environment for her students in remedial classes and rewarded students with "badges" for completing reading assignments. "These are the kids who never get noticed for anything," she said. "It changed the whole aspect of students coming to my classroom." Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

By the way, our school had our fall festival during the first week of November and we had a chance to wear costume of our favorite book character when we were kids. Here's the photo in my classroom, my kids had a blast reading Dr. Seuss books!
