Here’s What Educators and Parents Say…

“My 3rd grade son found writing difficult, and because he wasn’t perfect at it, he’d
give up. He’s had so much fun creating stories with his new friends and doing
Punch the Period that now he’s not afraid to pick up a pencil.”
Catherine Lian, Parent

“This program is awesome. Justice has learned how to structure his paragraphs
and he can write expository. The most important thing he has gotten from this program
is confidence in himself and knowing he can write on his own.”
S. Yazzie, Parent

“Daniel’s self-esteem has gone way up. Daniel is 13 years old, and it is such a relief for
me to see him finally enjoying writing. He likes using his imagination, and
we have fun doing the activities together.”
Sonia Perez, Homeschooling Parent

“I wish every teacher in every county had the opportunity to work with Carol.”
Dana DeMartino, Arts Administrator,
FL. Dept. of State, Div. of Cultural Affairs

make her a much sought after presenter.”
Dr. Kathleen DiBona, Principal,
