Praise for Engaging Learners and Dr. Katherine McKnight:
"We have been on a short but steep improvement trajectory over the past three years, thanks in part to your learning center strategies and a curriculum that is well-aligned to the performance expectations of our students. I seriously told my superintendent not to be surprised if the State Department of Ed investigated us for cheating on the state testing because I have NEVER witnessed double-digit jumps in proficiency from year to year as we have experienced here."
– David Powers | Principal, Schoolcraft Middle School, MI
"Katie's dynamic personality and engaging professional development sessions have been the catalysts for some amazing steps in our school's curriculum."
– Elizabeth Knost | English teacher, Anderson, IN
"We have been fortunate to have Katie work with teachers throughout our district for several years now. She brings fresh ideas that are supported by authentic research. Our teachers always leave with something viable to use in their classrooms the very next day. Katie McKnight is definitely a ‘teacher's teacher’."
– Edie Emery | Instructional Specialist, Murfreesboro, TN
"Katie McKnight has made the job of being a teacher in today’s world do-able. The strategies she shares have improved instruction in our district tremendously! Katie’s sense of humor and realistic approach to teaching has resonated with our educators. The Title I school where she began her work in our district has skyrocketed. In fact, they received the highest scores in the district on our standardized achievement tests this past spring. She has made a difference for our teachers and our students."
– Holly Edds, Ed.D. | Superintendent, Orcutt Union School District, CA
