Educators Recommend ACT

Math ACT increased student understanding of grade level mathematics and student self-efficacy because Kimberly and Patty made mathematics collaborative and challenging with the use of manipulatives. Math ACT also increased student use of grade level vocabulary with strategic use of word walls.

Kimberly and Patty rock the mathematics world with their innovative approach to working with struggling learners. By melding their experiences and knowledge of mathematics and special education, these ladies are definitely spicing things up in the education world!
— Kelly Bevis, Special Education Coordinator, Somerset ISD
The professional development services provided by Ms. Cook have extended my expectations as an administrator. Feedback from campus staff is always positive. Her continued support of staff beyond the presentation, increases implementation in the classroom, ultimately impacting student achievement.
