“I am a first grade teacher in my first year of teaching and I was making slow progress with many of my low-achieving students.  After I received Augusta Mann’s video and guidebook and phonics posters and attended her workshops, I used her program in my classroom. l now I have no possible retainees. I have nine students who can read at a 2nd and 3rd grade level.”
First Year Teacher, Indianapolis, IN

“Excellent. Please come back every school year!”
Teacher Assistant, Detroit, MI

“Augusta, Wow! Your website is the balm for all that ills the teacher’s African American students. We know if we can teach them, they can learn. OABE and Culture Intervention is excited about your presentation, Thursday. Can’t wait.”

“A special education student at another school in the district was introduced to the Augusta Mann reading program in first grade. She continued to use the program with her second grade teacher. Her success was great and she has tested out of special education. We feel that the consistency of using this program from year to year has improved her reading ability and was one of the keys to her success.”
Jackie Cole, Special Education, Indianapolis, IN

“The workshop provided immediate methods that I am sure will produce measurable results.”

“I have tried many of Ms. Mann’s activities. I love how, over time, all these practices fit together to produce an enormously successful platform for my curriculum. Over the past three years I have grown as a professional. But better still, my students are having the reading success that had been so elusive to them.”
