Second-grader Dakota Padrone did an outstanding job in the Mathematical Learning Systems (MLS) lab at Llano (Texas) Elementary this year.
“Dakota came to class ready to work with a positive attitude each day,” shared facilitator Janet Hackworth. “He always worked hard to make the best possible grade on every paper. I appreciate his willingness to learn.”
Jami Keele, his classroom teacher, commented, “Dakota is a very happy, active learner!! I've enjoyed watching him grow and work hard all year. He is always eager to accomplish new goals, and he continues to strive for improvement. His wonderful attitude and sense of humor will serve him well as he continues through school. He is a fantastic student, and I am so lucky to have had the opportunity to teach him this year!”
This was Dakota’s first year in the MLS lab, and since January 2016, he has completed 32 lessons. He achieved a 90% Performance Participation score, and he had an amazing 76% increase from Pre-Test to Post-Test average!
Dakota’s teachers are proud of his progress, and we are, too! Outstanding work, Dakota!
