My experience with NUA was wonderful! I have never worked with a more experienced, trained, and talented group of people. The crew I had the pleasure of working with for the past 5 years were great! Augusta, Mammie, and Stephine were good at what they did. My training with them has taught me how to better help my students. I have also traveled and even taught their strategies to my colleagues. We have reinforced the use of the thinking maps and their concepts. Anyone who has the opprotunity to work with them will not regret it! I only wish I could still be a part of that family to help others understand the usage of the program and what it has to offer.

If I had to make changes in this organization it would be to make sure that evey school in the country had an opprotunity to just experience one year of this program.

How to reach all my students at their different ability levels. I love NUA!
Client Served & I worked with one of my students last year with his reading and use some of the strategies I learned from Augusta to help him reach benchmark. He read 92 words and came in reading only 12. I felt great!.
