As a veteran teacher with 20 years in the DOE, I look back and am so grateful for the opportunities that Joe and Dave have provided. I can honestly say that their classes are the reason I was able to earn the credits needed to move up the pay scale so quickly. Their simple, yet practical approach made it easy for me to complete the assignments. What made the classes even more enjoyable was having friends and colleagues who also took the classes with me. It was an opportunity for us to learn together, while also enjoying each others' company. I would highly recommend their classes!
Traci Young, 6th Grade SS Teacher Academic Coach

"Taking Joe Loverde's classes has provided me with a lot of knowledge that is practical and useful in the classroom.  Joe's experience and knowledge of education uplifts teacher to make real changes in their classrooms. His positive vibe and enthusiasm during his PD courses keeps everyone motivated and wanting to learn more to support themselves as well as their students.  He inspires teachers to be reflective on their teaching practices and provides strategies that will make a positive change for the teacher to support learning and student success."

Dave Pila, Vice Principal (McKinley High School)
"I really enjoyed taking classes from the LoVerde Group! The workload was very manageable and I was able to work at my own pace. The strategies I studied were immediately useful in my classroom. Emily was extremely helpful, getting back to me right away any time I had a question or problem. I would recommend these classes to any busy teacher that wants useful professional development.”
Sarah McKee, Teacher-
Portland, Oregon
"I have taken 5 classes from the LoVerde Group and everyone one of them has provided me with at least 3-4 great ideas and strategies I could immediately use in my classroom. If you are looking for classes that address the real issues that you are facing each day in the classroom, these are the classes for you."
