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.
