“My students love everything about this program! They cheer when I pull out the supplies! They really understand the concepts because they are shared in an age appropriate way.”

Ms. Bultman, Merriam Park Elementary School

“After all the lessons are completed, I have students who continue to bring up the objectives and learning from the lessons. For example, one student was playing at the home living center, pretending to work at a restaurant, and told them that she is a server, 'because a restaurant is a service'."

Ms. Davis, Green Springs Elementary School
