What Others are Saying

“Kristina was someone we really wanted to bring to Kettering, so all of our teachers could learn from her and with her.”

Michele Massa

Literacy Coach,
Kettering Schools, Kettering, OH

“All of us felt like, this is it. We can’t wait to get back to our district and start writing. This is our answer we have been waiting for for a long time.”

Julie Cox

District Literacy Coach,
Danville District 118, Danville, IL

“More intentional writing with a little mini-lesson thrown in. I think we were kind of stuck in the past of ‘I have to lecture share for 30 minutes and then we can write for 10.’”

Jeanetta Kathman

Principal,
