Willy Wood is an outstanding presenter with a stellar reputation.  Willy has done countless workshops for educators, K-12, in a variety of school districts—inner urban, rural, and suburban districts—and in states across the nation.  These workshops are interactive, carefully constructed, and packed with pedagogy and content that support the improved instruction of classroom teachers.  Willy is especially respected for his vast knowledge of research, content, and pedagogy.  He knows the ‘why’ behind the ‘what’ and ‘how’ of classroom instruction, and he is a consummate professional developer.

I just wanted to take a minute to let you know how much I really enjoyed your ‘Teaching That Sticks Intensive Institute’ that I took with you last summer.  If I would have known then what I know now, I could have saved myself a lot of time and money going to Harvard’s Project Zero and the Learning Brain Europe Conference.  I learned more in five days with you than I did in nine days in Manchester and Cambridge combined.  You have a way of giving teachers the latest research on learning in practical applications that can be used right away.  Your workshop was truly invaluable!  Thanks again!

Willy Wood has made presentations to our elementary teachers on the topics of writing, spelling, and brain-compatible instructional strategies over several years.  We have found him to be knowledgeable, current, and approachable.  Willy tailored his presentations to meet our professional development needs and worked flexibly within our time constraints. He is an educator who ‘practices what he preaches’ with regard to modeling brain-friendly teaching practices.  I recommend Willy Wood without reservation! Tracy Lanser
