Carissa Martinez, a fifth-grader at Lucile McKee Hendricks Elementary in McAllen, Texas, started the Essential Learning Systems (ELS) program when she was in the fourth grade. Carissa is a very motivated student who works her hardest every time she is in the lab.
Carissa is also a great role model and very helpful to her peers in the lab. Her fifth grade teacher Adriana Arce says, "Carissa always does her best and is very positive. I have seen her confidence grow because of the gains she has made. I am extremely proud of her!"
We're proud of you, too, Carissa!
