As a former middle-school Science teacher, I can attest to the fact that schools are caught in the middle these days. While every educator strives to teach our children crucial critical thinking strategies, we also must make sure that our students do well on the state-mandated standardized tests.
That's why it's refreshing to find a company like Mentoring Minds, which helps bridge the gap between these two goals. Mentoring Minds has dedicated themselves to excellence in developing quality educational products that are designed to help teachers teach children to think critically for effective problem solving.
Surrounded by a team of exceptional teachers, curriculum coordinators and administrators, their mission is to create educational materials that are "purposeful, effective, and affordable". Armed with many years of educational experience, Mentoring Minds is committed to continuously building a company that serves as a comprehensive center for the development of products that will actually be used by classroom teachers and their students.
There is an overwhelming amount of pressure placed on core subject teachers to excel regarding state-mandated exams. That's why I was especially impressed by the individual state standard flip charts. These essential charts are available for all 50 states and contain the vital information needed by grade level and subject matter. Having a STAAR Standards and Strategies Flip Chart available while developing lesson plans and drafting tests would make vertical alignment between grade levels much easier.
At Mentoring Minds, they take great pride in being a service-oriented company with the thousands of educators who invest in our products daily. Their staff is committed to serving your needs promptly and politely, and should you find any of their products less than outstanding, you may return them for a full refund. Mentoring Minds is dedicated to the continuous pursuit of providing children the best education possible and are ready and willing to provide you with the quality tools you need to be successful.

I'm a former 7th grade Science teacher turned stay-at-home mom that lives in Houston, Texas. I am married to my college sweetheart and have a beautiful daughter named Riley, who definitely keeps me on my toes! I am also involved in starting a small business which would both manufacture and sell an invention that I've patented, called Toothpaste 2 Go. I love interacting with my readers and hope to learn as much about you as you learn about me!
