Training Testimonial

“I have been talking to my teachers about assessment for months and I know that sometimes they need to hear it from someone else, but you gave the information in such a way that it really made sense to them.  Thank you!  I think that they now have the understanding along with your tools to make it easy to incorporate into their daily plans.  Thanks so much for making assessment interesting!”          Sophia Chalmers M.Ed.
