Mr. Brian is a wonderful teacher. His book Literacy Mats is a good guide toward a successful education. It helps building knowledge step by step by being explicit and intentional. Clarity of why and what kids should learn about a topic, concept or skill, is well - developed through Learning Points which we find in the book ( Literacy Mats) and in Units of Study Mr. Brian has developed.

Lately I’ve had the privilege to closely work with Mr. Brian. He is one of the most experienced teacher and therefore I would highly suggest you to use his intelligence, methodology and his teaching knowledge. I’ve never seen a more positive and understanding person with a great approach towards students and teachers as well.
