"This is the most engaging, informative, and useful workshop I have ever attended. I cannot wait to use it in my classroom!"
A. Kistler

  "I'm a special ed teacher, and I felt this would be just ‘another workshop’ that would not apply to me. Instead, I found easy, practical ideas that I can use with my pull-out students."
K. Meyer

"Courtney was well-spoken and had a great rapport with my students. She knows what she's talking about, and it shows in her meetings with teachers. It made me less apprehensive to teach the 6 Traits and tackle mini-lessons."
