12 Quotes from ATS participants: I have been quieter and more attentive during class and treat everyone with respect.” K.E. “I have taken the thought of waking up early and getting to school on time second semester. I’ve been turning in my homework since the first day of school second semester and been getting good feedback from my teachers verbally and non-verbally. Example: My math teacher sees that I’ve been getting to school early and she gives me a smile because I’m one of the first to be in class. This made me more happier of myself and there’s much more but its too much.” S.R.
