"Amy, Thank you so much. You have good practical ideas to use for the classroom. When I discovered your website a couple of years ago, I bought units of work to help me cover the curriculum and I have recommended your website to colleagues at school. Thank you for sharing planning units and webinars." -Sarah
"I just completed your maths program PD video and first of all can I say thank you. It's completely transformed the way I want to do maths!" - Danielle
"Thank you for a very informative PD on Teaching Maths, especially on how to use the different strategies. I also found that your method of assessment and recording of assessments, in the form of a tracker was excellent and will definitely keep me in the loop as to where each of my students are in their learning and of course, a huge help with reviewing Maths goals and report writing. I will definitely watch the video again as I think I would need to refer to it every now again, just as a refresher. " - Veni
