Brenda Overturf knows her reading!
She's a fun presenter (very knowledgeable) and makes digging into the Common Core Standards a "want-to" experience!                                                                                                                               -Janet M. Dr. Brenda Overturf is a gifted educator. She uses her incredible wealth of literacy knowledge and intersperses it with her own personal experiences to create an amazing workshop. I can only imagine the scores of students who have become more literate because of her efforts.                                                                                                                                  -Lyn G. Dr. Overturf is one of the most knowledgeable teachers I have ever had. She is not only a great teacher, but a wonderful person. Her sessions are always engaging, interesting, and phenomenal.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   -Rolando M. What was missing from my college education courses were practical strategies. College courses focused on so much theory. Brenda Overturf presented a plethora of strategies which I will be able to easily implement in my classroom this fall. Dr. Overturf is a very professional and knowledgeable individual who makes learning both fun and interesting. She has taught me so much about reading and I will take all the skills I learned and incorporate them in my classroom. She helped me become a better teacher!                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    -Tara R. I have known Dr. Brenda Overturf for years. Her expertise truly enhances teacher quality and helps teachers increase student achievement in the area of literacy! She provides the tools and resources to assist teachers in designing engaging lessons, which is essential as students develop literacy skills.
