“Thank you SO much for your wonderful work with our students this week. They are enjoying it so much and so are we! You are making a huge impact on our students and we are incredibly grateful!” – Jamie Herold, 3rd grade teacher

“I absolutely loved this seminar. I got so many new ideas and different approaches and even different ways of thinking. I’m very excited to go to class and try many of these ideas with children.” – evaluation after a full-day presentation on A Place for Wonder: Wonder & Inquiry

“Our son was so inspired by the poetry workshop you are leading with the students this week. Yesterday, as on Monday, he couldn’t wait to share the poem he wrote with us. He announced after the workshop that he intends to write poetry his entire life and that he wants to share poetry with his kids when he is an adult. – email from parent after a week-long virtual poetry workshop with students

“I’ve never been to a workshop where there were so many tearful, personal moments as well as great classroom suggestions. – note from a teacher after my writing workshop presentation

Scholastic’s Teacher Magazine wrote about Georgia Heard, “She is the “go-to classroom poet…prized by kids and teachers alike.”
