Mrs. Byrd believes that all children can learn at high levels, but each learns in a different way and at different rates. She believes that with hard work and perseverance we can touch each child in a special way. Keeping the atmosphere positive is the key to success as well as keeping the lines of communication open among staff, students, and parents. Mrs. Byrd feels that teamwork is the ultimate way a school can be successful in reaching the goal of helping a child attain his or her full potential.
