Testimonials

Working with a literacy consultant is a big step; ensuring that you are working with the right one for your team is the key to teaching a successful curriculum. Below is some feedback we have received from people who have been happy to work with Leah!

“Leah comes with a wealth of information that she has acquired over the years in many ways. As a former upper- and lower-grade teacher, she is masterful in the classroom and continues now as a consultant to teach in classrooms on a regular basis. She has also written and researched three books, which has given her the opportunity to think about some important literacy topics in depth. Also, because she is experienced in working with schools/​districts she can help them make the best use of their time with her. When schools hire Leah, they are often able to achieve their literacy goals in fewer days with her because she shows them how to use their time more effectively.”
