Hello from New Mexico,

My name is Rebecca Clare and I am a 6th grade science teacher in Rio Rancho, NM.  I am very interested how you structured the PBS/RTI/Character Education program at your school.  What format did you use to intergrate the two and what character education curriculum are you using?  How do you make it all work?
Thank you for any advise or suggestions you can offer!
