My name is Brianna. I am a teacher, a mother of a beautiful little girl named Addie, and an expecting Mommy of another little girl. This has been a tough year for teachers and students alike. This school year has provided challenges and kept many young learners from growing to their fullest learning potential. As a teacher, I can say with confidence that if the children I teach had arrived at school with the foundation that AILA sets, they would be fine, even in this tough education climate. I am so glad that my little girl has AILA. Honestly, with working from home, being pregnant, and navigating the changes of this year, I have not had the time to work with Addie as I would have liked. Still, Addie is recognizing new letters all the time in her Read Aloud Stories Book, so I know the credit goes to her AILA schooling.
