"Mrs. Collier has a talent for helping students with various learning styles, cultural backgrounds, behaviors and abilities. She takes her time when dealing with each student on a personal level.  Her lessons and activities that she has created has been so thoughtfully planned, that her students do not even realize the complexity of the task."

"Cathy Collier's excitement about reading instruction is intoxicating and contagious. Her presentation to the Norfolk Reading Council encouraged teachers, built their confidence, and inspired them to try new things in their classrooms. Her charismatic personality makes her so approachable and she is willing to share her knowledge, ideas, and strategies. Attendees, as well as myself, still email her when we have questions or just need new ideas. I would recommend her for any speaking engagement as all teachers can learn from her and will enjoy every minute of her presentation."
