What Teachers Say About Training and Support

Educators on Support-2


Paula Sizemore, Executive Administrator

"We added GrapeSEED in our second year of programming offerings. The difference between the Kindergarten students who received GrapeSEED compared to those who did not is surprising." Read more


Cheryl Kalinowski-Preschool Teacher, and other educators

"For me what GrapeSEED has done is made my lesson planning easier because it’s given me a solid base. It’s made my life easier, and I think it’s made me a better teacher. And it has definitely helped the students because I’m not just standing there drilling them and it’s not paper/pencil; it’s hands-on through movement and song and dancing, and they love it because they’re exposed to it so many different times and so many different ways."

Peggy Bohac, First Grade Teacher

"I have one little girl with a language impairment who typically only spoke in 1-2 word utterances. At day seven of GrapeSEED, she spoke her first complete sentence, without prompting or guidance from me. I believe in GrapeSEED!" Read more


Kasey MacKinnon, First Grade Teacher

"Now all of our Pre-school, Kindergarten, and first grade students are using the GrapeSEED program. When a program is this engaging and this successful, we can’t NOT give our early childhood students the opportunity to benefit from it." Read more


Ellen Coget, Kindergarten Teacher

"One of the biggest benefits of GrapeSEED is the level of student engagement during the GrapeSEED lessons. I have never seen a program in which the students were so consistently engaged at such a high level over time." Read more


Kim Aspin, Kindergarten Teacher

"I truly enjoy the song components of GrapeSEED! I love to sing and the children just love to express themselves through song. Singing can be contagious. I can hear them singing the songs throughout our day; the tunes are catchy and fun!" Read more


Kristine Rose, Title One Literacy Teacher

"The children really enjoy the GrapeSEED experience and love coming to class. In fact, the second graders in my building wish that they could have it as well, and we have even used it as a reward system for children in that grade, where they can earn time in GrapeSEED." Read more


Courtney Frank, Kindergarten Teacher

"The students who have had GrapeSEED since they started Kindergarten are able to tell stories with a beginning, middle and end, and they are able to communicate their ideas about books easier than children who have not been exposed to the GrapeSEED program. I can see GrapeSEED working in my classroom!" Read more


Anna Davis, Kindergarten Teacher

"My main concern was time. It was a lot to ask with everything else we had to teach. I was also skeptical about using it with my English speaking students. After adopting GrapeSEED, all my concerns went away!" Read more


Katie Danks, GSRP Preschool Lead Teacher

"I’ve been teaching preschool for 4 years now and I’ve never been more passionate about one particular curriculum. GrapeSEED has enhanced my classroom from the start and I look forward to teaching with it for years to come!" Read more


Laura Tenney, GSRP Preschool Teacher

"Our main concerns revolved around usability and developmental appropriateness. I would recommend GrapeSEED to anyone. I have not seen students begin to use academic language and speak in full sentences as fast as I have seen with GrapeSEED." Read more


Darla Neill, CAA Preschool Teaching Assistant

"The students seem so excited about the material. When I ask a question I’m noticing more complete sentences and details from the children. This has occurred during GrapeSEED lessons and also at other times of the day." Read more
