"Humor and wisdom make for a powerful combination and this describes Mary Smith to a T. I’ve known Mary for 13 years. She once gave me a piece of advice that I carry with me to this day. Teachers face a number of challenges that can be draining. Couple that with life’s challenges, and, well, sometimes teachers need a “personal trainer” – like Mary! Don’t pass up the opportunity to listen to Mary’s words of wisdom, and, of course, humor!"
Lisa J., Special Education Teacher, Houston, TX
"The Texas 5th Grade Science Study Guide and the Texas 5th Grade Science STAAR Prep Guide have both been lifesavers for me! The Study Guide has saved me so much time because my students highlight what we are learning and their parents can keep up with what we are covering in class! The STAAR Prep Guide is even better! STAAR formatted questions for every 5th grade TEK and some 3rd and 4th grade TEKS already done for me! Touchdown!"
