“Missy was very helpful in assisting Will’s mom and I prepare for the IEP meetings at Will’s school.Throughout their time together, Missy demonstrated a genuine concern for Will’s success.
We don’t believe that Will would be the successful and confident student that he is today if it were not for the several years of working closely with Missy.”
“Missy exuded knowledge, confidence and patience in working with our son, Zachary, to overcome his inability to concentrate and retain when reading. Missy was able to gain Zachary’s confidence, teach him the fundamentals of reading then transitioned him to comprehension. Today, Zachary enjoys reading books for pleasure and his comprehension in school is excellent”.
“Missy has been an extraordinary teacher, mentor and friend to our son for over 12 years. She provided the needed support and guidance for him to thrive in his preschool, primary school and middle school — where he graduated at the top of his class, due in no small part to her efforts and her ability to motivate him to perform his best and develop discipline and organization in his study habits — and a joy of learning in all subjects. Missy has an ability to draw the best from her students, combined with a unique perspective that every student is able to learn and has unique gifts to offer the communities in which they live.”
“Missy has been working with our son for five years.
She has helped identify his learning issues and pursue ways to assist him in these areas. Missy has continued to keep her skills and knowledge current throughout the time we have worked with her. She applies this latest information to our son’s educational therapy. He is doing significantly better in school with her help. Our son counts on his time with Missy and looks forward to his educational therapy sessions.”
“Missy Silver has done outstanding work with our daughter throughout grade school and high school. Missy has worked closely with our daughter’s teachers for the past 5 years to ensure that her way of learning was accommodated. Since our daughter was diagnosed with dyslexia and ADHD, it has been challenging as parents to work within the school system. Missy has successfully navigated ways for the teacher, student and parents to work together in helping our daughter succeed. If you are fortunate to get Missy up to bat for your child, I say “congratulations, you are doing a wonderful service for your child!”
“Missy has made such a tremendous impact on how much my daughter enjoys learning and her accomplishments to be part of an inclusive classroom. Missy has given my daughter new creative ways to learn reading, writing and math concepts that have given her a new confidence and joy in learning. Missy always has a plan for each session that creates fun and innovative multi-sensory techniques to teach concepts that lesson, and oftentimes, eliminate my daughter’s frustration with her homework and schoolwork. Missy works closely with my daughter’s teacher and aide to provide ideas of how to adapt classroom lesson plans and different teaching strategies that are more effective for my daughter’s learning preferences and abilities. Missy is able to take an area of the curriculum that has been challenging for my daughter to learn and creates a scaffold of activities to teach her along with various extension activities to reinforce the concept that she is learning. Missy is positive, collaborative, creative and engaging.”
“Missy is a keen observer, a gifted collaborator and an extraordinary advocate for young learners. As a fellow professional, I welcome more opportunities to collaborate with her.”
“Missy has been an absolute godsend for our organization. Her dizzying level of expertise, her generosity and availability for collaboration, and her fierce advocacy on behalf of all students has made her an utterly indispensable force of nature at our school. Missy’s passion is infectious, and as her colleague, I have benefited from her work at least as much as any of our students. Missy’s presence here has been truly transformative! ”
