More about us

I have learned so much from this course! I feel like I'm improving daily and I'm not kidding when I say how much more engaged my students seem with some of the small changes. They are responding so well! Students are still reaping the benefits now.

This class is by far the best I have ever taken! In my opinion this should be a required course in college and graduate courses for anyone wanting to become a language teacher. 

J. Meziane; ABC Participant

This week’s training is the best I’ve ever attended. I’m still processing like crazy, but it’s good processing. As someone ready for deeper understanding, this absolutely blew my mind! Exceeds expectations!

TFA Attendee, Long Beach

Elicia does a fabulous job of modeling mutual respect and positivity! She told us on the front end what she would present, asked us to prioritize our learning interests, and then geared her presentation accordingly. Her passion inspires others!
