I love everything Dr Breedlove presents! She has amazing ideas to help always push the students to the next level... and with independence. I love how the students can prove they have mastered the material so they don't have to sit through it all again.

The course was helpful. I especially liked "The Differentiator" I am going to look into this and see if I can use it in Kindergarten.
