If you have any Reading Mastery Plus books (all levels), please let me know. My son is in a new school that just opened in August. His teacher is trying to get all the Reading Mastery materials. I've found enough to get them started this year, but there are still lots of materials needed. His teacher used her entire retirement savings to open this school, so I am doing everything I can to help her get materials. She needs teacher's presentation materials and student materials.

Please see the website for the new school. The link is below. She was a special education teacher for 25 years and was so frustrated with No Child Left Behind that she left her job and was going to open a restaurant. Then, one night, she sat straight up in the bed and said she was going to open her own school and have a pizzeria to support the school, keeping private education affordable for families that needed it most. So, in late April, she opened the pizzeria, and the school opened in August with 6 students. She used every bit of her life savings and retirement to start this school, and I am determined to see it succeed. She has worked miracles with my son. I only have to wake him up once, and he gets ready to go on his own. So different from pouring water on his head, dragging him out of the bed, and pulling him out of the bathroom where he was trying to stick his finger down his throat to throw up. He actually likes school now!!! And, he's reading books without pulling teeth!

Here's the link: www.ourneighborhoodschool.com

Please help us find Reading Mastery materials. Maybe we can work out a book trade, or, I'll even pay for some materials as well.

Thanks so much, Rita.

PS--Even if you have older editions of the Reading Mastery program, please contact me. She's using the Rainbow Edition with her second grader.
