Speaker Reviews

Logic of English Workshops

“I learned more about reading and teaching reading in our LOE training sessions that I did in  all of my classes for my reading specialist licensure.”
—Paula Peterson
Kindergarten Teacher, Reading Specialist

“This training is a must-have for every teacher of reading!  Even as an adult, I had several ah-ha learning moments during each training session.  This instruction will awaken the love of reading in students at an early age by taking way the free and frustration of failure.  It is designed to build confidence and produce growth.”
South Carolina Teacher

“There are so many things that both teachers and students can learn.  You’ll be surprised at what you don’t know because you were never taught.  You can fill that void for your students.”
South Carolina Teacher

“If I knew these rules and reasons why, when I was an “early reader,” I feel I would not have trudged as much as I did.  The training restored my love of language the excitement to teach ELA again because it is a comprehensive program that can be used to teach all things that need to be covered in an ELA class.”
South Carolina Teacher

“This training is amazing and I know it will change the lives of my students, because it changed my life; I now know how the language comes together.”
South Carolina Teacher

“I can’t wait to sue this in my classroom.  When other see the improvement in my class, they will want this training.”
South Carolina Teacher
