Stacy is knowledgeable and current on the latest strategies and research in the field. She is able to answer unanticipated questions and provide examples for teachers on the spot. She is also extremely flexible. Not many educational consultants are so willing to create customized training sessions to ensure that all content is perfectly aligned with district initiatives. Stacy is able to be flexible due to her vast knowledge and experience base.

Stacy Kaczmarek was instrumental in training me in reading and writing workshop, a concept that was totally new to me. Stacy’s knowledge of teaching reading and writing and her ability to really break down the material to make it understandable, helped me to implement a program in a way that I felt proud of in the end. Our sessions consisted of the perfect balance of learning the philosophies and research behind the strategies and also developing lessons and activities that I could implement the very next day. Thank you Stacy, for taking the time to truly help mold me as a teacher.

As a first year Workshop teacher, Ms. Kaczmarek’s advice, insight, strategies, and support were invaluable. She not only helped us to feel better prepared to provide our students with the high level of instruction they deserved, but her supportive and positive personality also gave us the confidence we needed as teachers to tackle the new program. Enough can not be said of the level of importance her support and guidance has provided us as a grade level team and a district as a whole.

Stacy Kaczmarek is absolutely the best literacy consultant ever! The teachers in my district raved about how she supported them with the implementation of Reading and Writing Workshop into their classrooms. She allowed them to celebrate their vulnerabilities and joys of learning a framework for reading and writing, which has strengthened our students independent reading and writing skills tremendously.
