Abstract

A few years ago, our roles as first-grade teachers were expanded as we took on the added responsibilities of coordinating our school's implementation of a response to intervention (RTI) model. We discovered the best way to meet all students' and teachers' needs and expectations have been to adopt a collaborative, problem-solving model that upholds the ethical values in which our district believes. We have found RTI to be an inclusive and equitable way to meet the needs of learners.
