Client Testimonials

Brittany Cooper

“Last summer our PBIS team attended your training. You shared with us a video from the Sumner School District, we were so impressed with it that we have spent all year creating our own. I wanted to share it with you and say thank you for helping inspire us to create it.”

Brian Johnson, Principal Green Meadows Intermediate

“In August 2013, I was a first-year principal of a struggling, low-performing school.  Our school began working with Dianne that September, and we saw an immediate positive impact on staff and student performance.  Dianne supported us in building a foundation that changed the culture and climate of the school.  Over the past 2.5 years, Dianne has become a part of us and helped our school grow in so many ways.  Through Dianne’s work and support, I have become a more effective school leader and our staff has become a stronger team with a better understanding of what it looks like to provide a high-quality education to all students.  Dianne McKinley is a difference maker!”

Matthew Miller, Principal Tri-Central Elementary

“I would highly recommend Dianne McKinley as an educational consultant for your school.  Dianne was instrumental in leading our school from a letter grade of “D” to a letter grade of “A” in just over a year’s time.  Her knowledge and professionalism is second to none.  Dianne has a wealth of experience, including her work with the Indiana Department of Education.  Her depth of knowledge will enhance your school’s best practices and leadership practices.”
