Working with Izolda for four years was an amazing partnership for Walker Mill Middle School. Her deep knowledge and vast skills helped expose students to environmental science and STEM. The benefits of our partnership with Izolda were evident in the Science SLO pre to post assessments and students increased interest in the STEM fields. -Patrice Felton, former teacher at Walker Mill Middle School

I absolutely loved visiting your class on Thursday. I wish I had had time to go with your class to see the experiments/measurements. I was so impressed with your explanations and how engaged your middle-schoolers were – no small feat. The visit was a pleasure and I think you are an excellent instructor! -Rosemary Muir, Lifelong Learning Coordinator, Howard Community College, Columbia, Maryland

Her presentation was just perfect for the occasion. -Ingrid Richardson, Teacher of Gifted, K-5, Northside Elementary School, Newnan, Georgia

She excites and inspires students to understand and want to learn more. -Elissa Levine, Ph.D. NASA Soil Scientist, Retired
