she is such a compassionate, dedicated teacher who has helped my seven year old son Frankie tremendously. Frankie is now in 3rd grade but had Ms. Scafaru the first two years of school. My son has learned so much and has become a very good student and I owe a great deal of gratitude to this wonderful teacher for her guidance. Now she is the teacher of my 5 year old Christopher in Kindergarten. My son Christopher is a very hyper and easily distracted child. He is a great son but I knew he would have some troubles at school because of the immature behavior. I feel truly blessed that Ms. Scafaru taught my son Frankie and knew that she was the right teacher to help guide, teach and provide the discipline he needed. It has been over a month now and my son is coming along nicely. He has shown good progress and is doing well. Together we are working on the behavior issues which are getting better and my son truly enjoys school. When I see him get up in the morning on his own and explain how excited he is to learn at school, I am filled with appreciation and happiness. Ms. Scafaru has been exactly what our boys need. I hope that she is recognized because she deserves it. She is very humble and would probably downplay what I am saying, but trust me I have seen her greatness and just want her to know she is appreciated.
