Throughout our time together, Sandy has provoked ample growth in my practice as she has gently challenged my way of thinking and encouraged me to dive deeper into my pedagogical implementation. Her expertise in the fields of early childhood education and the Reggio Emilia Philosophy is evident in her ease to identify and develop areas of growth. This is demonstrated as she often guides my practice by asking one simple, yet deep question, semantically constructed in a way to stimulate extensive reflection on my part.                                                           -- Kayla Angelosante, Pedagogista, Fairfax, VA

Sandy is a perfect blend of joy, curiosity and pedagogical wisdom. I have come to rely heavily on Sandy's instincts and experience both as a thinking partner and as a guide in my educational journey. I know that I am not alone in my feelings that she is a rare and valuable resource for so many educators in so many communities.                               -Josh Rifkin, Teacher                         Staenberg-Loup JCC ELS,                                Denver CO

Sandy has been a tremendous mentor in my career.  Her natural curiosity to understand others and their thinking process is authentic and contagious.  As she strives to understand my own intentions, her validation and thought provoking prompts at every step inspire me to approach others with curiosity and wonder, too.

                   --Lisa Plotkin, Educational Consultant                                                  Richmond VA



Sandy is a gem. She is calm and approachable as well as extremely knowledgeable. Sandy thinks very deeply and pushes her mentees to really reflect and process differently than before. She is able to work with all kinds of people, since she connects and gets to know each person and focuses on what they need to be successful. I have many “aha” moments when I listen to her speak. Sandy is also very flexible and works well with any schedule. I highly recommend bringing her in to work with staff and administration. We can all benefit from Sandy’s presence- which in turn benefits our children.                                                                                                                                                           --Melissa Lebowitz, Preschool Director, Beth T'filoh Community School, Baltimore MD

Even during a pandemic, where safety was a priority for everyone in our preschool, Sandy’s workshop helped us focus and deepen our understanding of our foundational purpose, creating a dynamic learning  environment for our students.  Sandy’s workshop was a wonderful reminder of how the Reggio Approach puts value on our relationships and interactions with children, especially during a time of stress and anxiety.  While we are clear about what we truly want for children, like fostering creativity, optimism, and a sense of self-worth, we explored how we can work with children toward these goals through building a sense of connection and community. The tools Sandy shared will help us move forward with intention, wonder and joy.                                                                                                                                    --Ora Cohen Rosenfeld, Director, Beth Emeth ECC, Herndon VA
