HIGHLAND HEIGHTS, Ohio - Andrea Palmisano teaches at Millridge Elementary School in Highland Heights.
The 5-year-olds in her class are curious about everything and are eager to learn. They're putting sounds together to make words, learning songs and rhythm. They're also learning to express themselves.
Mrs. Palmisano is a fun teacher, but she's serious about observing. Earlier this year, she was able to detect a hearing problem in one of her students. Now, that child is learning and understanding so much better.
