What other teachers are saying:

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ “I really appreciate resources like this that still puts classroom teachers in the driver's seat. With a system like this, the organization part is set up so teachers can focus on content and student success!” -April W. 

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ “This template allowed me to focus more on the materials for the escape room rather than trying to figure out how to set it up. I used this template for my student teaching and the students were so engaged! This lesson took students who are shy into talkative students in small groups and kept students who are normally off-task working the entire time.” -Anna S.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ “This is FANTASTIC! After becoming obsessed with your escape rooms, I decided to try it on my own for one story we were reading in class. This was so easy to use, when I know I would have been lost and frustrated on my own.” -Christy P.
