Teacher testimonial:

Richina Grau, Intensive Reading Teacher, Brevard Public Schools, Florida

The curriculum here in Brevard county for secondary reading is in PDF workbooks that our district prints and sends out to us- but many resources we have to print in addition. I was given the opportunity this year to have a set of Chromebooks and make my classroom curriculum almost completely digital thanks to Kami.”
