Our literacy consultants bring:

Practical + Inspirational

Engaging participants at a large conference session

Our years of experience, leading engaging, thought-provoking, and practical professional development informs every session our consultants lead and facilitate.

We know a balance of theory and practice is essential for making the most of you and your participant’s investments. We know lives are busy and educators who choose to spend their dollars and their hours at your event deserve to walk away feeling inspired and with a wealth of new ideas to support their students.

Our team of literacy consultants continually work in classrooms, their ideas are steeped in educational theory but are brought to life through authentic classroom practice.
