LearningRx would like to give a huge “shout out” to our national 2020 Student of the Year winner Elizabeth Benedict from Tysons, Virginia. An English as a Second Language (ESL) teacher for over 20 years, Elizabeth struggled to read, write, listen, and speak—the very skills she taught each day in her classroom. She feared for her job and was exhausted each night. She had no confidence and chose not to participate in conversations with friends and colleagues, for fear of missing information or frustrating someone. Elizabeth enrolled in a LearningRx brain training program and experienced life-changing results. Check out the video to hear more about Elizabeth’s happy ending!
Teacher has found joy in teaching after one-on-one brain training at LearningRx
LearningRx Tysons Center Director, Maureen Loftus had this to say about Elizabeth’s improvements: “By the end of her training, Elizabeth was reading long books for the first time and feeling on top of the world. Her most recent teaching observation yielded high marks and countless compliments. Elizabeth was finally enjoying teaching and feeling a connection with her students. Her confidence soared such that she views herself equal to her colleagues and can truly collaborate for the first time. Finally, Elizabeth no longer feared she would be fired; she no longer feared teaching, her students or colleagues. Elizabeth no longer feared life. Elizabeth felt smart!
And the improvements keep coming. When the COVID-19 pandemic occurred, she jumped into distance learning seeking out the resources to be successful. And she has LOVED distance teaching. She has been so successful at engaging her students online that she is one of a handful of teachers asked to work with children over the summer who need extra help. Her newly uncovered love for teaching hasn’t stopped at school. Elizabeth has also taken on being a Youth Minister at her church working with 8th graders. Finally, Elizabeth is fully embracing and relishing all the joy that life has to offer.”
Congratulations, Elizabeth! We are so proud of you.
