“Working with Beth for the past six years has been enlightening. She is what I call the "Guru" of the world of
differentiated instruction.  She never runs out of ideas to help students of varying abilities.  Beth has a natural
understanding of children’s needs in both academic and social settings.  She offers realistic suggestions to anyone
who comes in contact with students so that the students can meet with success.  Beth is a warm, gentle,
and loving woman who makes working with her an absolute delight. She opens up people's eyes to realize how 
important, yet simple, it can be to reach each and every child within a classroom”.
