What our community is saying

You did a fantastic job of explaining how to use certain Zoom functions with very clear directions. Great stuff to transform face to face to virtual environments with ease.

This was truly FANTASTIC and one of the most useful and enjoyable Zoom sessions that I have attended. It would be incredible to have continued learning opportunities with you or a way to allow our teachers to learn with you. Thank you for your work!

I learned so many fun, practical, engaging strategies and activities that I can use with my students. I loved how clearly everything was explained and how much fun you made the learning.

I appreciate the increase in self-confidence you have given me that takes away the fear of creating zoom classroom meetings. Thank you. You have made an important difference during trying times.

This was the BEST ONLINE WORKSHOP I have attended. And I've been to a lot. Thank you for surprising me with the excellent quality! I'm SO HAPPY!

I loved the playful nature of the engagement. Mallory and Reggie are very warm and supportive. They want us to be successful. I loved how they worked together as a team to facilitate the process.
