Lisa Meyers, Academic Dean

Valley Lutheran High School, Saginaw, MI

"I have attended several training sessions with Karen and also hired her to train my faculty. She is knowledgeable and down-to-earth and her excitement for integrating technology in the classroom is contagious. After any training, we are left with tons of resources and ideas for putting them into use. She is easy to work with - reliable and professional."

"Karen's workshops and sessions are filled with practical ideas for using Google tools and products to improve instruction. Karen and I have presented and shared together for many years and I would recommend her to any district looking for Google training and support."

Mary Hankins, Technology Teacher,

Emerson Elementary, Owosso, MI

"I have attended many of Karen's workshops and in fact, search her's out at conferences. She has tons of resources, fun sites for all ages and is extremely knowledgeable. She shares her email with attendees and is a great resource even after the conference. If you want more than your money's worth, then attend one of her sessions."
