“ERG offered to our staff a unique opportunity to engage in staff development that enhanced the instructional strategies for all teachers in the area of reading. Their instructional coaching provides immediate feedback and creates an atmosphere of collegiality all the while assisting teachers in making decisions that will yield the improved results in student achievement needed in this age of accountability.  It is a win-win situation. Leaksville-Spray Elementary School experienced a 12 point gain in the percent of students who were able to acquire proficiency on the 2009 End of Grade reading test.  We contribute much of that success to our ERG colleagues”.

— Cindy Corcoran, Principal, Leaksville-Spray Elementary, Rockingham County

“ERG provided high-quality services for North Hills Elementary. They personalized staff development for teachers who were experienced as well as those newly certified. We felt ERG was a part of our school family.”

“I sincerely enjoyed ERG observing me and giving me feedback. The input they provided was non-threatening. I appreciated the way they talked with me as a respected colleague, together we brain-stormed ways for me to improve my practice. I wish ERG could be with me once a month! By far, this staff development was the best I’ve ever had! Receiving real remarks in regard to my instruction in real time far surpasses any workshop where the speaker talks at you or reads to you from handouts!”

— Martha Sockwell, Classroom Teacher, Mount Olive Elementary, Stokes County
