Literacy Consultant Leah Mermelstein

Practical HANDS-ON workshops to promote literacy and applied arts on a shoestring budget that are easily integrated into any curriculum at any age level and meet  CCSS standards.


“What makes this conference DIFFERENT?”

  • Experience first-hand ideas that will add life and sparkle to standards-driven curriculum. We’ll show you how!

  • Practical lessons that differentiate individual needs and develop critical thinking and problem-solving skills in fun and creative activities.

  • Revitalize yourself with enriching experiences that have an immediate impact in your daily classroom.


What our past participants have to say about their TOOTB Summer Institute experience:


“I am still reeling from my two days spent in the company of such creative minds.  I can’t thank you enough for allowing me to share in the experience of attending your workshop.  I came away totally energized and ready to “light the flame”.  The students of the teachers who attended your workshop are truly lucky children.  For me, personally, the timing was perfect.  I feel like  I spent two days in a spa for the mind, body and soul. “


“Just wanted to let you know again how much I enjoyed the workshop you presented these last two days.  There was so much talent in that room and I could feel the energy.  It really touched me on  many levels and I am looking forward to bringing back so many creative ideas to my classroom.  You both are an inspiration!”


“…thank you for the tremendous amount of planning and organization you did to make this an experience that was meaningful and memorable. Your efforts left me wishing the days were longer, and provided me with a notebook full of ideas, activities, projects, and brainpops that I can bring to my students from the first day of school!
