Michelle Archambault's statement:
"I believe that students' educational attainment should not be restricted by individual differences. While holding high expectations for each student, I use differentiated instruction to address individual differences regarding abilities, needs, and goals. I am a strong advocate of flexible grouping in math. This approach is a response to the fact within any grade level, there is a wide range of math abilities. In this model, I am not asking students to fit into a certain class, but designing groups based on student needs. The goal of each flexible group will target specific mathematical needs to ensure that all students master the essentials of each math unit."
