A message from Kai-leé Berke, CEO of Teaching Strategies

Dear Colleagues,

At Teaching Strategies, our mission has always been to provide the most effective resources to support educators like you as you inspire, teach, and care for our youngest learners. I am so honored to be working on your behalf as CEO of this company.

As early childhood educators, each one of you has made children your first commitment. Every day, you dedicate yourselves to creating a bright future for every child. And here at Teaching Strategies, our first commitment is to you, and to supporting our work together. My personal promise to you includes a commitment to high-quality product development, to responsive customer service, and to our decades-long mission of supporting great teaching and inspiring creative,
confident thinkers.

As a former early childhood teacher and administrator myself, I know first-hand both the joys and challenges of what you do each day. I’m also the mother to two young children. So I’d like to thank you for your hard work, dedication and commitment to our nation’s early learners. I look forward to working with you to ensure all young children have a strong foundation
for success.

Thank you for all that you do.


Kai-leé Berke
