Renaissance Honor Roll

I'm a librarian at Anaya Elementary in Pharr, Texas. This is the fourth year in a row I have earned the Renaissance Honor Roll. I participate in Honor Roll so our students succeed! We love to do schoolwide reading events.

My greatest success with Accelerated Reader is seeing the students gradually increase their reading ability.

I have been a librarian for 5 years. This is the second year in a row that my school earned this award. I have seen the students reading levels soar since we started on the National Honor Roll track. I enjoy hearing the students say they met their goal - they are so proud of themselves! My 5th Graders still love when I read a picture book to them. It's not just about reading on your level sometimes, it's about enjoying a book.

I think that my attitude about reading is definitely rubbing off on them. Every now and then I will hear a student say "I know that this isn't in my level, but I am going to read it just for fun!"

I'm a 2nd grade teacher at Westwood Primary in Texas. I graduated from here and have now taught here for 7 years! I bleed orange! My students love Accelerated Reader. My greatest success is that my students want to take not only reading quizzes but also vocabulary quizzes. This has been spectacular for my ELL students!

I participate in National Honor Roll because I love the challenges and pushing my students to be successful.

I love being a teacher to 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students in a rural school in Montana. I am an avid reader and love seeing my students develop a love for reading as well!

Through use of Accelerated Reader I have watched struggling readers become excited about reading and soar to new reading levels! My students love to read to the kindergartners whenever they get a chance!

I am a Delta State graduate with a love for reading, football, and Memphis-style BBQ! My students have been OBSESSED with increasing their certification levels this year - I have seen tremendous growth due to that!

I participated in Honor Roll this year because I wanted to challenge myself to challenge my students.

Renaissance Honor Roll

I'm a ten year veteran of Renaissance Accelerated Reader and Star Assessments and the Clark County School District in Nevada. I teach 5th grade and have been a two time Renaissance Master Classroom teacher and Honor Roll recipient.

My greatest success with Accelerated Reader is getting those students who have said they hated reading for years become the kids their parents have to physically wrestle books away from at night so they can go to sleep. Through using Accelerated Reader data students have taken ownership of their learning and the parents get to see tangible progress as well. I offer up 'mystery motivators' in which we set a goal and then once a certain number of kids reach it I do things like shave my head, eat bugs, or have an ice cream party.

This is my 13 year teaching. Currently I am a 3rd grade teacher at Savannah Grove Elementary in Effingham, SC. I believe that given the necessary tools and opportunity, every child can learn! My greatest success with Accelerated Reader was having every single student in my class willingly work towards and achieve their reading goal each grading period.

I participated in Renaissance National Honor Roll, because I wanted to lead my students by example. I wanted them to see me working towards a goal just as they were and for them to know that we were going to succeed together. Some of my students got so caught up in reading nonfiction books this year that they were randomly giving me facts throughout the school day!

I am a librarian of dedicated and passionate readers. Our school is an International Baccalaureate Authorized School. I love what I do with my patrons! Our students have become great readers! They are very much aware of how far they can challenge themselves using their ZPDs and are consistently achieving 85% or higher in their quizzes. They have also grown to like the vocabulary and literary skills tests.

The National Honor Roll program helps us focus on our goals as a school. Making students and teachers aware of our data targets makes the learning personalized and dynamic and helps us be more consistent and committed to our implementation. When I walk through the halls of the school students will tell me that they got an 85 or higher in their quizzes. This makes me smile!

I am in my 13th year of teaching. I have taught kindergarten, 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grades! My greatest success with Accelerated Reader 360 is seeing the students improve over the year. Some students improve as much as two grade levels! The confidence Accelerated Reader 360 provides to students in invaluable!

I participate in National Honor Roll because it's important for me to always raise the bar - not only for myself, but for my students. At Dawes Intermediate School, a National Blue Ribbon Lighthouse School, we require our students to have 90% average percent correct to meet their quarterly goals. We raise the bar at Dawes Intermediate School and our students rise to meet and exceed our expectations!
