Welcome back to Teachers in America, where we celebrate teachers and their lasting impact on students' learning journeys and lives.

In this episode, our host Noelle Morris welcomes education leaders, Rachael Cunningham and Sarah Fox. Both Rachael and Sarah currently sit on the leadership team at the Charles Armstrong School in Belmont, California, which serves students in grades 2-8 with language-based learning differences, such as dyslexia. HMH has partnered with the Charles Armstrong School to pilot new program features within Read 180 and conduct research.
