Heidi Butkus
Website: www.heidisongs.com

Heidi created 46 phonics assessments directly tied to her world renowned HeidiSongs instructional resources.
Heidi is a credentialed Reading Specialist with over 25 years experience in the Primary classroom. After years of developing her own curriculum, Heidi's peers urged her to present this material at the California Kindergarten Conference, which generated an overwhelming response to publish her program. She has since grown this basic curriculum into the ‘HeidiSongs’ product line and website, which now includes both music and videos, plus presentations and keynotes nationwide.

Deedee Wills

Deedee created 22 CCSS Kindergarten tests to provide an easy and efficient way to track and report student progress, create small groups and develop effective intervention strategies using real-time item analyses.
Deedee was in the Navy Reserves for 6 years.  She went in the Reserves to pay for her education. She taught four years in second grade before she was asked to help launch their Balance Literacy adoption in her district.  She served as a Literacy Coach for two years but missed having her own class.  So when a kindergarten position opened up, Deedee begged and pleaded... Ta Da!  She's back in the classroom.   Deedee says, "Kindergarten is amazing and I'm here to stay!"
