The proof is in the pudding.

We love sharing what we do and empowering teachers, classrooms, and students. Here’s what teachers have to say about our workshops and our method!

“I have been to a ton of workshops in 23 years of teaching. I’m kicking myself for not getting to one of [gretchen’s] trainings sooner! All I can say is sign up now–it’ll be one of your best decisions of the year!”

-T.G. Lincoln, Big Spring ISD

“It’s June and i’m ready to implement everything shared today in my classroom! I’m pumped for the upcoming school year.”

-A. Curtis, Belton ISD

“I used grammar keeper lessons before staar writing 2015 and had 98% of my students pass at our title I school. The lessons are formatted in ways that students just get it! ”

-S. Cass, Cy-Fair ISD

“[the book] grammar keepers is like the holy grail. Every teacher should own this. Great presentation and thank you for sharing!”

-A. Coronado, Austin ISD

“During the exercise we laughed, cried, took risks and learned from one another. The exact same environment we as teachers strive to create for our kids in our classrooms.”

-K. Ellis, Katy ISD

“I’m uncomfortable teaching grammar and now I feel better prepared to tecah it in a new way. Bye-bye grammar books/worksheets!”

-J. Thurik, Channelview ISD

“Fast-paced, interactive, and completely relevant information–this 2 day staar writing workshop was just what I needed as I recover from the past year as a fourth grade ela teacher and prepare for the next. Great strategies!”

-S. Schlemeyer, Cy-Fair ISD

“The 2-day conference flew by leaving me wanting more. I wish I had heard about these strategies years ago, or better yet…I wish I had been taught this way! Great training, wonderful trainer, amazing information!”

-J. Bellows, Northside ISD

“This has, by far, been the most enlightening and entertaining training i’ve been to. I’ve laughted, cried (because I was laughing), and had so many lightbulb moments in the last two days. I cannot wait for the school year to start so I can apply some of these strategies.”

-D. Velutnukaran, Houston ISD

“Thank you for inserting humor into your presentations, for not making me play games and pretend i’m in 4th grade. Thank you for treating me as a professional and giving me the tools to allow my students the ability to become successful and excited writers. Time flew by…”

-K. Chambers, Klein ISD

“Thanks for sharing the Charm Check with us at the Richardson, TX workshop. My 4th grade students loved writing their kernel essays and were excited to see them displayed in the hallway!”
