“The consultants at AAIS are hands down the best educational consultants I have worked with in the last twenty years.  They have the unique ability to help guide district-level systems while also having the hands-on skill to work with teachers at the school level.  In addition, our district and school-based staff also find them to be very “real” in the sense that they are very personable and easy to work with.”

“As Project Director of Smaller Learning Communities in Nashville, TN, I would like to endorse the work of Robin Shrode and David Holden. They have worked with teachers and administrators in 8 of our comprehensive high schools. We have piloted a model of ongoing support with them that has provided teams of teachers with models and strategies that they have practiced throughout the year. Their formal trainings have also been valuable to our system.”
