"Jackie worked with our team of school administrators and a select group of teachers to help our district transition to full implementation of the RtI model. Throughout the process, we found her to be very knowledgeable, approachable, and understanding of our district’s needs. She was very invested in helping us to achieve our district’s professional development goals and remains willing to collaborate with us to this day. As we prepared for the staff development program, Jackie contacted us regularly to thoroughly assess our priorities in order to tailor the program in accordance to our specific objectives. We would definitely recommend Jackie to other districts to help support their professional learning initiatives."
