Our Story

Tricia and Amanda have known each other, well, for their whole lives. They are sisters who have enjoyed learning and growing together. After years of circumventing each other in similar educational positions, they found themselves working together to help support students with diverse learning needs in a variety of settings. After years of collaboration, they have decided to put their brains together to create a comprehensive resource for caregivers looking for ways to help support their children both at home and in conjunction with school based supports. 

Combined, the two have over three decades of service in the education field within general education, special education, student support services, and as building administrators. Tricia and Amanda thrive on thinking outside of the box to find creative strategies aimed at making even the most abstract of learning goals tangible and achievable for all learners. Their goal is to be a comprehensive resource for parents and caregivers, helping them nurture their children’s potential both at home and in collaboration with schools, so every student can achieve their best.
