Smekens Education testimonial
"After 33 years of teaching, I still am drawn back into Kristina's workshops because they are research-based, standards-focused, and very interactive. No matter your years of experience or age of your students you teach, you will glean a lot of great teaching strategies!" Katie Cadle, teacher at Throop Elementary School, Paoli, IN
