Ali, CIS student at Waccamaw School, ready for end of grade testing

Ali is showing off her skills on the computer learning program Mobymax as she works hard to prepare herself for end of grade testing. Ali used to not like the program because her scores were always low, but look at her smile! She gets so excited to show off her effort and accomplishments. She is gaining confidence and has learned not to give up when things get hard. Ali used to be too scared to ask for help. It took months of coaching and reinforcement from her Success Coach but she is now brave enough to raise her hand when she is confused or throw it up to show off her improving scores.
