"Teaching is so much work. To expect every school and teacher to be continually up to date on their own is not even reasonable. A center such as this, to which teachers could commonly turn for quality support of reading research and practice is long overdue. The energy and commitment that Sally Grimes has devoted to teacher education is remarkable."
- Marilyn Adams, Ph.D. Brown University
"Sally Grimes is that rare person who has made a life-long commitment to improving children's ability to read and to changing educational practices. Her unique personality and talents in working with children, teachers, principals, and policy makers and her commitment to searching out methods based on research support, have enabled her to help others to change where such efforts have seemed doomed to failure."
- Edwin Martin, Ph.D. Former Assistant Secretary for Special Education and Rehabilitative Services, U.S. Department of Education
"Without question, Sally Grimes and her professional development trainers are the best qualified reading experts in Massachusetts."
- Barbara Gardner, Former Associate Commissioner of School Readiness - Massachusetts Department of Education
"The programmatic assistance she (Sally Grimes and the Grimes Reading Institute) has provided to our curriculum administrators and principals in developing school and district-wide instructional strategies has been extremely well received."
