“This was AMAZING from start to finish. Your speakers were stellar and experts in the field. … So much good information to help me plan PD for my teachers and help them intentionally plan to support our kiddos in Fundations!”

“[The Fundations Conference] was absolutely top-notch! If I didn’t know this was your first virtual conference, I would have thought you had been implementing them in this format for years! The speakers were spot on with evidence-based practices and practical implications that honored our current teaching environment.”
