"I have had the privilege of knowing and working with Dr. Eran Magen for the last several years. As high stakes accountability and testing remain the focus of current educational ideology in public education, it is important that we not lose sight of developing and maintaining positive and healthy relationships with our staffs and students. Eran's professional development and ongoing coaching of our staff and administrative team has been an invaluable investment."
