“I got to work with Ruth when we were both members of the Board of Directors for the large national non-profit, Playworks.org, in San Francisco. One of things she did while on the Board was create a Playworks curriculum for student-teachers at San Jose State University. It was a privilege to work with her. And what she has created with FOCUS 1-2-3 is essential in education today. Based on the latest research in neuroscience, FOCUS 1-2-3 enables teachers to have their students’ brains much more receptive to learning throughout the entire school day. Its use should be required in all classrooms.” Betsy Burroughs, President, Focus Catalyst
