An international trainer of the Great Leaps program, Ms. Skisland literally wrote the book on training the Great Leaps interventions. As part of the design team for the program for the past 6 years, her materials and expertise have trained 1000s both in the United States and abroad. Her materials and training were used extensively during the Covid crisis and that shift towards the flexibility that remote learning offers has encouraged her to digitize her training experience to have the biggest impact she can towards her mission to help every child read to their potential.
