“We’ve got to be willing to be okay not doing the same thing we’ve always done.”

“I love the ongoing, immediate feedback and staying true to both MTA and Esperanza programs. I think that’s what’s good for kids. These are great practices and now it’s on a platform that speaks their language.”

Mary Jane Bowman, executive director of literacy, pre-K programs, dyslexia services, and academic interventions, at Grand Prairie ISD, TX, gives her view of the Amplio platform, the collaborative relationship between Grand Prairie ISD and Amplio, and her message for her fellow literacy and special education specialists: “We’re in a time in education that we have to meet students where they’re at, and this is one of those platforms that can really help our teachers and help our students. But we’ve got to be willing to be okay not doing the same thing we’ve always done, and the beauty of it is that there’s someone else the other side that’s going to walk you through the process.”
