Frequently Asked Questions


April Smith

began my teaching career in 2008, working primarily in Title I schools. Poor attendance was a frequent issue for my students, so I poured my energy into creating learning activities that were relevant, rooted in real life, and made them want to come to school.

In 2015, I was thrilled when I was awarded county Intermediate Teacher of the Year.  I also realized that I was onto something with my engagement-focused approach, and I began forming even more ideas about how I could help fellow teachers engage their students.

I currently work with over 150 districts and 9,000 individual teachers, providing them with lessons that increase student success and coaching them on research-based strategies. I am excited to learn more about your needs and to help support you in meeting your instructional goals.
