"Our kids are our #1 priority, so we feel it is important that we invest our time, resources, and money to the students. We also feel we owe it to our students to share the many great things that occur at school to our community and beyond. #Socialschool4EDU has capitalized on all of this for Edgar. The investment has proved to be a huge success. The positive impact we are having with their learning experience is being amplified by the thousands of people who get to celebrate with them.”
“Andrea is an engaging presenter. Her patience for all levels of learners is awesome. The “real life” examples and stories really provide a great background for learning.”

"As a former Marketing Manager, I thought I was up on all of the “tricks” of the social media trade. Your workshop gave me incite to a number of time saving and effective shortcuts. We will definitely be utilizing all of the social media applications combined with print media marketing efforts to promote our school district and communicate with the public to pass a referendum!”
"Thanks to Andrea North, the Frederic School District is touching the lives of those connected to our schools, in ways we've never been able to in the past. We have the ability to involve a segment of our stakeholders that is truly interested and committed to helping our schools serve its students and community at a high level."
“I had a few reservations prior to launching our District’s Facebook page, but now wish that we would have started much earlier. Andrea and SocialSchool4EDU has been great to work with and is constantly working to make our social media experience better. As such, our community is staying connected with all of the great things happening within our schools.”
“Andrea's expertise in the Social Media and Marketing area has had a profound effect on our district's ability to connect with the public. Parents, community, students, staff, school board, and administration have embraced this wonderful tool for telling people about all the great things that go on in our school district. Andrea's work has been instrumental in engaging our stakeholders improving the image of our school.”
