Our philosophy

Proven learning approaches

Teaching is one of the most challenging and complex jobs on the planet. Our digital resources, tools, and learning materials are developed by educational experts to incorporate leading pedagogical practices. They are useful in any type of teaching moment and many can be used to support national education standards.

Empowered educators

From school teachers and tutors to home schoolers and parents, engaged adults are the key to unlocking each child’s potential and drive to learn. We empower all kinds of educators to teach kids by providing the best educational resources in any form or device to be used at home, at school, and everywhere in-between.

Unique experiences

There is no such thing as “one size fits all” in education; each educator and child has unique challenges and goals. We celebrate the diversity of our users by offering differentiated resources that can meet a wide range of educational needs – and raise kids’ confidence in learning.

Conscientious and supportive

We continue to provide academically sound content of the highest caliber and welcome input from our users as we address issues of equity, diversity, inclusivity and representation. Since we know there are many different approaches to teaching and education, we develop our materials to complement these different philosophies across subjects and grades.

And just in case you need the answers:

It’s a fun, upbeat collection of songs celebrating everything from Halloween to Hanukkah to New Years Eve.

writing

Writing From the Heart

One of my favorite things to do is writing. I consider it such an honor to write for other people, purposes, and outlets. It’s even more gratifying when someone actually pays me to write. Never thought that would happen.

I’ve been writing for Between the Bridges for about nine months now. I write a column called Mom2Mom as well as the occasional review, family feature, or sponsor spotlight. When I write my Mom2Mom column almost every month, I really do write from the heart. I stand behind every word I say and I truly want the readers to gain something from it. I feel proud when I see my work within the finished product and I hope my community sees the value in this resident friendly publication.

My subject this month was about that ever famous question, “Are you ready for the holidays?” My answer is always a resounding YES, but not for the reasons that most people think. In this column, I share some of the ways I have found to fully enjoy the holiday season without wasting all of my time getting ready for it.
