From Teachers

The best part about working with Chris on literacy is her ability to meet you where you are.  She quickly sees what your needs are and gives you useful strategies that you can implement tomorrow. Her advice is practical and realistic.  She knows how to communicate with a classroom teacher.   -Tom, 4th Grade Teacher

Christina is a wonderful teacher/coach/collaborator. Having her as a literacy coach, I learned so much, and was able to grow my practice as a writing teacher. She makes you feel comfortable and supported when working with her. Plus, she can come into your classroom and make an immediate connection with your students, too!   -Gina, 1st Grade
