"I found quickly that student progress wasn’t just about academics, but also whether they were a good citizen or a good friend. Students were praised and shouted out for demonstrating those abilities. Today, I try to marry academics with personal growth in the classroom." —Shanasia Shelton, KIPP Lanning Square Primary teacher
