When you walk into one of our CLI Model Classrooms™, one of the first things you’ll notice is the walls. Chances are they’ll be covered with strips of paper, each displaying a different word. Oftentimes, you’ll even be surprised at the complexity of the words in even the youngest classrooms — words like “fiasco” and “adventuring.”
Our Mission and Vision
By CLI’s Executive Director Kelly Hunter, Ed.D.
Imagine a classroom where students eagerly work together to complete assignments, where colorful student artwork and writing cover the walls, and where shelves of engaging and interesting books line an area filled with comfortable couches, pillows, and carpets to create a welcoming environment for children to curl up and read.
