Suzanne Wolf has been passionate about providing underprivileged communities with resources and opportunities to improve the quality of their lives. She also has enjoyed bridging the gap of communication between Spanish speaking families and their interactions at school and in the community as well. Suzanne recently had an epiphany after becoming an Associate Trainer for Time to Teach, that there were many highly regarded colleagues with a similar passion to improve the state of our educational system around the nation (and ultimately throughout the world). The concept of “several pieces of a puzzle being necessary to improve the educational picture as a whole”, inspired Suzanne to create the idea of a heart shaped puzzle as the logo for Project P.E.A.C.E. Suzanne is now eager to promote. Project P.E.A.C.E. on a national level to impact classrooms on a grander scale than her one classroom at a time.

Ashlie Randolph -Project PEACE Advocate in Differentiated Instruction    Nationally Accredited Trainer in Differentiated Instructor for Time to Teach, Educator

As an educator within the largest school district in the state of Nevada for nearly a decade, I have had the great pleasure of teaching a variety of students ranging from Pre-K to 8th Grade. Within the private sector, I have facilitated a variety of programs and learning environments that have allowed adults with intellectual disabilities to develop skills essential to them living successful lives independently. My experiences in both of these fields have impressed upon me how relevant a differentiated approach is to effective instruction. On my journey to be the most effective educator that I can be, I have discovered and implemented various teaching methods which I am committed to sharing with my fellow educators. In the field of Education, the greatest reward is seeing your students not only comprehend that which you are teaching, but to take these concepts on as their own. Differentiated Instruction is a proven method which is easy to learn and implement into your teaching style that will increase success both for you and your students both inside and outside of the classroom. I look forward to sharing my knowledge as an educator with you and your colleagues as you continue your development in the noble profession of Education via my on-site training sessions and keynote engagements.
