What a wealth of ideas! Mr. Lane provides wonderful techniques to use in the classroom while at the same time being entertaining and a delight. I would recommend this workshop to anyone in any area of education.       --Maelynn Webb , grade 4

I had no idea how to light a fire under my students–Now I do! I feel like I have the tools and confidence to guide students successfully on their writing journey.      --Amy Francis, grade 8

Excellent seminar. Every teacher/administrator should attend. It will change what you do in the classroom to help students become more successful in their writing.   -- Jim Moon, Principal

The best workshop I have attended. The lessons are simple, but super effective for younger and older students.   -- Naomi Fuentes, 11th grade

I have learned numerous strategies and ideas that I am very excited about implementing in the classroom. Moreover, Barry Lane’s training is suitable for ELA teachers at every grade level.   --Cicely Driver grade 7

I absolutely loved this workshop! It was just what I needed. I am so thankful for the wealth of knowledge I have gained today!                                                Lauren Webb, grade 3
