Thank you for reaching out! As you well understand, you are at a critical point. I would love to work with you on this.
I sometimes observe emphasis placed on the wrong priorities. For example, it seems, that there always seems to be a need to purchase another new online homework suite, or iPads or other technology, when the main priorities do not get the appropriate level of attention. In my mind, retention and lack of mastery may be the top priorities and problems areas in secondary education. Schools that construct curricula where the students have adequate homework, appropriate difficulty level of homework, and a learning model that is repetitively reinforcing material from a comprehensive point of view, have students that are the most successful in terms of acquisition of mastery.
