M. Krumrine: "I wanted to be a mom and a wife when I was at home AND an excellent teacher at school. I felt like I spent hours preparing for classes, and I did this at home - at my children's and husband's expense. Now, I can use my planning time in school to grade papers and now create fun and creative activities in just moments! I am excited to be able to be a great mom, wife and a great teacher - all year round! I've learned to think outside the box - the ideas are applicable for so many different activities - not just as they may be labeled! Thank you very much for helping make teaching life easier!"
D. Davis: "Love it!!!!! It has made my job sooooo much easier and enjoyable. I can create differentiated assignments with the click of my mouse. I am working on getting the other teachers to purchase, working on the administration next. I think if I can get the teachers interested as a group, we can approach the administration. So glad I took the time to drop by your booth and that you were approachable. Probably one of the most valuable tools I have purchased."
T. Simmons: "All I can say is Wow and double WOW! This website really does make teaching easier. All of those assigned tasks that I want my students to do as classroom teacher are reduced to a simple click here and click there. I am very fond of the word cards and word wall cards. They really add a dynamic to my lessons. The students are able to have quick, hands-on manipulatives with which to increase their learning and understanding of a topic. I really appreciate your demonstration that you did at the MICCA Conference in Baltimore earlier this year! You have really made my teaching easier! Thanks again. I will definitely spread the word about this Web site."
Bev: "YOU made me "Teacher of the Year" today. You wowed them until they were speechless. Halfway through the presentation, I looked around and some were staring at the screen with their mouths wide open. One sitting next to me said, "This is like a spiritual experience." After your presentation, we had to go back to the staff meeting, but, as soon as it was over, I saw several rushing to their rooms to set up their accounts. I can't thank you enough; you did a fabulous job and made me look so good. I will stay in touch and let you know what is happening. Thank you once again."
K. Gundrum: "It has saved me tons of time. We recently had to come up with remediation
and enrichment lessons to meet the needs of students once the Indiana ISTEP plus test results were returned. This was a great help in preparing lesson plans that weren't the traditional pencil and paper sort of activities. The kids enjoyed the lessons that were made with a more hands-on approach!! Thank you very much for introducing this site to me in Indy at a Bob Johnson
workshop. Both this site and his ideas for differentiated learning have helped me greatly!!"
M. Davison: "I have been using the program several times a week. I am very pleased with the speed and ease of use. The forms I most often make are Bingo (25 word), ABC order, and word search. It has been very helpful to students to get the extra sight/spelling word practice. I have made some easier activities for my lowest groups. I also showed the program to our special ed teacher."
C. Evershed: "I am pleased so far with the site. I am teaching summer school and plan on using the site to support the curriculum there also. A huge bonus!!! :-)
I shared the site with other staff members. I gave them my password to explore and get feedback. It was very positive. One of my fellow teachers has spoken to our principal already about it. He said it would be fine to buy building wide. I enjoy doing business with you and will recommend your site to fellow district teachers outside our building."
N. Fish: "I have made several activities, and the kids have really enjoyed using them. I plan to look at it a lot more this summer when I have more time. I am so glad I saw this program at my workshop. Thanks again!!"
C. McGown: "I am very pleased! I have used it for spelling and vocabulary words. I took samples around the work room to show fellow teachers! I have been telling everyone about it, including our Reading Coach and our site Tech Support person. I think this is a great site that all teachers will be able to benefit from. I am very happy with the program and am trying to spread the word! I'm glad that I ran into you at the CUE conference!"
S. Wilson: "I love it! I love it! I love it! It has been saving me so much time with spelling, helping me modify for my autistic students."

Barnes Elementary Staff: "We are all using the templates with gusto! They are adding a new dimension to the work pages we design for the children. In addition, the website provides easy templates for creating games that provide fun practice of skills. The children are really enjoying this!

J. Stamper: "I am so impressed with this site! There are so many possibilities. I have shared one of the writing page sheets (the pond) with a fellow teacher of science. I have made a BINGO game with terms that the students in my Civics classes need to know. When we play this game with me giving the definition and them having to find the word, they will be learning and not even know it. They will just think they are having fun. I am so happy I attended the workshop where I was introduced to this site. I hope to be able to use it more and more."

And, you should know, the feedback was from a wide variety of educators in our school: Music Teachers, the Art Teacher, the Reading Teachers (of course), the Speech teacher, Librarian, etc., as well as the regular ed. teachers and our principal. You truly have developed a program that makes teaching easier."

B. Jones, Houston, TX: "Thank you for the demoÖthe teachers were excited about the possibilities they saw. In a bilingual school, giving teachers equal access in Spanish is a dream come true!
