"Encinitas Union School District sought out Jenny and CraftEd to help us take our project based learning to a new level. I can honestly say every participant from principals, to teachers to Teachers On Special Assignment grew in their understanding, confidence and toolbox surrounding design thinking and project based learning. I particularly appreciated the modeling of research based practices in every session! I feel like our work with Jenny has helped to re-energize our team, as well as improve the quality of our PBL units!"

She aided in cultivating a culture of critique at our school site that has been foundational for deeper learning. Her guidance has made us a better school."

"Jenny’s passion for developing professional learning opportunities that not only push your thinking and growth, but also empowering and inspiring, are contagious. I am a big advocate on starting with the “learner”, and moving backwards from there, and Jenny has shown a commitment to make that a focus in the experiences she is creating for those that she serves."
