“Growing up in the segregated south with dyslexia and attention deficit disorder, my escape was facilitated by compassionate and thoughtful teachers like Selma Ridgway, who recognized that different is not a disability, but rather simply a challenge. Creative Learners offers a comprehensive roadmap for teachers who often struggle with overcrowded classrooms, inadequate facilities, and students who may be unaware of their learning differences.

Imagine a world where educators utilize differences to motivate students to achieve—Selma Ridgway has opened a portal to that world and we should embrace it forcefully. As Ambassador to the United Nations, I traveled the world and preached the Gospel of education as the most potent antidote to poverty, racism, and conflict. This marvelous book will be an effective tool for uplifting our ‘different children.’”

“Everyone who attended your sessions has done nothing but rave about how wonderful it was. The training is intense and can be a lot but our teachers have gone on and on about how much they have learned. You presented it in such a real, exciting, and fun way. I am getting emails, texts, and calls about how the teachers are already using what they learned. I have also had so many more people ask me if they could be in the next cohort.”
