  • I view the Be GLAD strategies as educational tools that I'm adding to my tool box. They're my hammer, screw drivers, and pliers. They may not necessarily be the exact tool I need for every situation, but they certainly help cover a broad spectrum of needs.

  • I love how Be GLAD incorporates art and science and social studies content into teaching high-level vocabulary and the increased teamwork among students

    Jessie Pedilla2nd Grade Teacher
  • Be GLAD has opened up a whole new world of teaching for me. It just makes sense and helps reach so many learners. I have noticed a difference. I wish I had learned to Be GLAD long ago.
