About the Seller

Gina Kennedy
(2 Reviews)

After spending almost 30 years as a public educator, I am currently a "Differentiation Consultant" in which I've worked with districts adding enrichment materials to their curriculum and I am an adjunct field representative supervising student teachers.

Over the years I have taught 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th grade; as well as serving as a Curriculum Specialist, Testing Coach and finally a Gifted Specialist for many years.

I worked as a contributor to major textbook companies for seven years which caused me to realize there is a lack of authentic, challenging teaching materials that require little teacher prep and offer the rigor needed to meet the depth of our curriculum standards that students currently face.  The products I offer require little teacher prep, are fun and creative and provide the level of rigor needed to challenge even your brightest learners.
