About Us

Dr. Sally Earnest believes that student success is fostered when there is a team approach from parents, teachers, administrators, and other supportive educators and family members. These team approaches are facilitated by continuing education of professionals and parents to ensure that they are effectively addressing and meeting the needs of children and adolescents. Therefore, Dr. Earnest has channeled her passion and expertise through professional development opportunities that facilitate communication, build capacity, share innovative practices while focusing on the next generation, our children.
