Letter from Marcia Brechtel

We are proud of and honored to be the only organization, public or private, to have the endorsement of the co-creator and former director of Project GLAD®, Marcia Brechtel. 

As Marcia puts it, our agency “…consistently adhered to and followed the Project GLAD methodology as designed by Linnea Haley and myself, and approved of by the United States Department of Education.”

Our careful commitment to the training model and research-based teaching strategies has given us the same high results of achievement over the past 20 years. We also continue to field-test the original strategies and new innovative strategies to keep our practice on the cutting edge, which is celebrated by Marcia. “They have continued our long-standing history of having data to support their integrity to the original Project GLAD.” The best professional development needs current data to support current practice.

The same spirit of Project GLAD continues with Be GLAD as we head into the 21st century. “Although I have retired from an active role…I continue to consult with and advise…” Just like Project GLAD, Be GLAD continues Marcia and Linnea’s work with teachers. We continue to celebrate each individual child and use the best teaching practices because it is “…the cornerstone for so much academic success on the part of students.”
